St. Petersburg police looking for two men wanted in two armed robberies

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for two men believed to have robbed two convenience stores at gunpoint early last week.

The two unidentified men entered a 7-Eleven at 3956 Elkcam Blvd. SE just before midnight on Dec. 7, police said. One of the men carried a small silver handgun and pointed it at the clerk's head while the other leaped over the counter and ordered the clerk to open the cash register.

The clerk complied and the man reached into the drawer and took an undisclosed amount of money.

Both then fled the store.

The man with the gun was described as black, in his late teens to early 20s and slender. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black knitted cap, black bandana, black shorts and black shoes. The second man was described as black and in his late teens to early 20s. He was wearing a black knitted cap, black bandana, black hooded sweatshirt with a white long-sleeve T-shirt underneath, black pants, and black shoes.

The two men also are suspected of robbing the Suhani Food Mart at 2539 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N Dec. 6 about 10:50 p.m.

Police ask anyone with knowledge of the case to call (727) 893-7780, or the Tip Line at (727) 892-5000 or Text-a-Tip at (727) 420-8911.
