Tampa Police are investigating a second armed robbery at the same Family Dollar store within three days.
In the latest incident, an unidentified masked man is seen on surveillance video entering the store, at 4900 N 40th St., on Wednesday around 9:06 a.m., police said.
He is seen jumping over the counter as he takes out a gun, points it at the clerk and demands money.
The clerk opened the cash register, and the suspect grabbed the cash and fled on foot toward the back of the business, police said.
The man is between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 with a thin to medium build, police said. He was last seen wearing a white shirt, blue athletic pants with a white stripe on the side, a baseball cap and a purple bandana over his face.
Multiple patrol officers, including K-9 and air units, were dispatched to the scene. The investigation is still ongoing.
Police said it is unclear if this robbery is connected to one at the same store on Sunday.
In that one, around 6 p.m., a man entered the store and demanded money, implying he had a gun underneath a draped arm. He escaped in a gold Nissan Maxima.
Detectives are seeking the public's assistance to help identify the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
