St. Petersburg police looking for men who robbed pain clinic at gunpoint

ST. PETERSBURG —Police are looking for three men: two who robbed a pain management clinic at gunpoint Wednesday and a third who drove the getaway car.

The men entered St. Petersburg Pain Management and Urgent Care Clinic, 4900 33rd Ave. N, about 3:35 p.m. and stole an undetermined amount of oxycodone, police said.

Surveillance video shows the men rushing into the clinic with their guns pointed at the reception area. Three employees drop to the ground. A female customer darts toward a chair, where she remained throughout the robbery.

One man, whose face is covered by a hood, holds a sack and summons a female employee in a green medical uniform with his gun. He disappears from the video with the woman, her hands lifted in the air. This is presumably when the oxycodone theft occurs.

While his partner is away, the other man paces around the reception area, keeping an eye on the employees and customer. He wore jeans with distinctive light-colored designs on the back pockets.

The men race out of the store about three minutes after their entrance.

Police believe they rode away in a red Chevy Impala driven by a third person who stayed behind during the robbery.

No one appeared to be injured.

Police ask anyone with information to call their tip line at (727) 892-5000 or send a text to (727) 420-8911.
