ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - St. Petersburg police believe four armed robberies, including one this morning, were committed by the same two men. Investigators are now asking for the public's help in identifying them.
Investigators believe the pair struck for the fourth time Wednesday morning around 11 a.m. at a Sunoco station at 6800 4th Street North. The cashier and a delivery driver who was in the store were robbed.
The first robbery occurred on February 5 around 10 p.m. at the Kenwood Citgo Gas Station at 900 34th Street North.
The next two robberies occurred on February 11.
The first took place at the Chevron Gas station at 5405 Dr. ML King Street North around 9:50 p.m.
About 15 minutes later, the KR Food Store at 2835 16th Street North was held up.
No injuries were reported in the three robberies.
The robbers are described as black males in their late teens to early 20's. In all cases, one was armed with a handgun, the other was not.
During the Kenwood robbery, a surveillance camera captured an image showing the face of one of the suspects. He was wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with what appears to be the words "Pinellas Park" appearing in white lettering on the front.
Anyone who might recognize the suspect in the photo or has information concerning the robberies is asked to call Detective Wallace Pavelski at 727-893-4823.
Callers may also call 727-893-7780 or the TIP line at 727-892-5000.
