Robbery Suspect and Stolen Laptop.

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are requesting help from the public in identifying a home-invasion robber.

On Oct. 21 at 7:34 p.m., a man forced his way into 2538 28th St. N, showed a handgun and asked for money, police said. The man put the gun to the female victim's head and walked her to a back bedroom.

The robber demanded money again, and the victim said she didn't have any, police said. The robber then took a laptop after kicking in the bedroom door. He then ran away.

Police say the robber then approached someone in the neighborhood and tried to sell the laptop. The person became suspicious and took a photo of the man.

Police ask anyone with information to call the robbery unit at (727) 893-7179 or the police communication center at (727) 893-7780.
