Police seek man in two St. Petersburg ATM robberies

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for a man they say demanded money from two ATM users at gunpoint last week.

On Jan. 25, at 9:05 p.m., the robber had a gun drawn when he approached a man using an ATM at Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union at 34th Street S, police said. The man at the machine was about to make a withdrawal, but he escaped without giving the suspect cash.

On Friday, the same robber approached another man with a revolver while he made a withdrawal from that ATM at midnight, said St. Petersburg police spokesman Johnny Harris.

The robber demanded that the man withdraw money twice before he ran away.

The suspect has dark skin and could be between 20 and 25 years old, about 170 to 180 pounds and about 5 feet 8.

The robber wore a black T-shirt, denim shorts, a blue or black bandana, and a white Hershey's Kissables racing jacket with light blue sleeves.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the robbery unit at (727) 893-7179.

Harris said people who call police or Crime Stoppers could receive a reward.
