St. Petersburg police search for two men who robbed pain clinic

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are asking for help in identifying two men who robbed a pain clinic this week.

Two men entered the Pain Management Open MRI Clinic at 6705 38 Ave N in St. Petersburg Tuesday at 3 p.m. They waited in line to approach the counter and when they got to the front one man implied he had a weapon and the other jumped over the counter and rummaged through the office drawers, police said.

Once he found the cash box, the man fled, but before he could jump back over the counter, an employee grabbed the man from behind and knocked the cash box out of his hands, police said.

Both men fled.

One man was described as black, about 24 years old, 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, with a goatee. He was wearing a black baseball cap and all black clothing, police said.

The second man is described as black, about 18 years old, 5-foot-6 with a medium build and black shoulder-length dreads. He was wearing a black shirt and red Dickie shorts.

Police ask anyone with information to call them at (727) 893-7780 or the confidential tip line at (727) 893-5000.
