ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for three men in a string of armed robberies in the past two weeks.

In the most recent robbery, three men entered Sunny's Hair and Beauty Supply at 2108 49th St. S about 3 p.m. Monday.

One wore a bandana over his face, and another had a shirt covering his. One of the masked men had a handgun and took cash from the register.

All three ran from the store and fled east on bicycles.

Police described one man as black, in his 20s, about 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 10, and 140 to 160 pounds, with shoulder-length dreadlocks tied in a ponytail. Another also was in his 20s, black, about the same height and 130 to 140 pounds. The third was described as black, in his 30s, was about 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet and 150 to 170 pounds.

The same men are suspected of robbing the New Plaza Motel at 400 34th St. N on Oct. 27 and the Mobil gas station at 4850 Central Ave. on Sunday.

Police said the descriptions and method of operation in the two other robberies match the one at Sunny's Hair and Beauty Supply.

Police think the suspects live in neighborhoods near the three robberies.
