Detectives are trying to identify a Florida man who walked into the Circle K at 904 30th Ave E., Bradenton yesterday morning and produced what appears to be a single shot sawed off shotgun and demanded money.
The unknown suspect took the cash and fled the area on a beach cruiser-style bicycle, westbound on 30th Ave. E.
It is believed that this is the same person who robbed the Circle K at 3006 1st Street West, Bradenton on 09/16.
In that case, a suspect fitting the same description pulled out a long gun from his pants and demanded cash.
The store clerk complied and the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured in either of these robberies.
The suspect is described as a middle-aged black male, medium build, wearing blue jeans, a black shirt, with a blue durag and a blue shirt wrapped around his head.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office at (941) 747-3011 or Crime Stoppers at (866) 634-TIPS.
