Police search for Temple Terrace carjackers

TEMPLE TERRACE — Authorities are searching for two armed men who carjacked a bank customer early Monday morning and fired two shots at the victim as he ran away.

Temple Terrace Police say the victim stopped at a Bank of America on N 56th Street when two armed men approached and ordered him to withdraw money from the ATM. While at the ATM, the victim escaped, and one of the two suspects fired twice with a shotgun. The victim was not injured.

The two men took his vehicle, a black cherry Mazda CX-7, Florida tag 732-ITB. Both men were believed to be armed.

Police say one of the suspects may have been involved in two similar incidents at the bank earlier this month.

The first occurred on June 5 at 9:40 p.m. when a victim was approached by an armed man and forced to withdraw an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect forced the victim to drive him to another location, where he fled. On June 17, an armed man ordered a victim at the ATM to withdraw money. The suspect fled when he was unable to obtain the victim's money.

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the Temple Terrace Police Department at (813) 989-7110.
