MANATEE — A 46-year-old man was robbed outside his carport Friday night, the sheriff’s office reports.
The victim was outside his residence at about 11 p.m. in the 500 block of 37th Avenue Drive East when he was rushed by two armed men wearing all black clothing, gloves and ski masks.
The suspects forced the victim inside the residence, ordered the rest of his family to get on the floor and then took three cell phones and cash from them, a media release said. They then fled in a dark-colored sedan, possibly a Lincoln.
No shots were fired, and nobody was injured during the robbery.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (941) 747-3011 or Crime Stoppers at (866) 634-8477.
