Search On For Two Suspects
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – Detectives from the Palm Bay Police Department’s Major Case Unit are investigating an armed robbery that took place early Sunday morning.
Palm Bay Police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said that about 3:15 a.m. Sunday, two suspects entered the Circle K store at 4950 Babcock Street NE.
One of the suspects went towards the rear of the store while the other suspect attempted to purchase a “Black and Mild” cigar.
When the clerk opened the register, a suspect pointed a small black handgun at her and demanded the cash from the register, Martinez said.
The gun is described as having wooden grips and what appears to be a homemade silencer.
“The clerk complied and the two suspects fled the store on foot,” Martinez said. “The suspects are described as two black males in their 30’s.”
One of the suspects is described as being about 5-foot-8 and weighing about 200 pounds. He was wearing what appeared to be a blue “Florida Gators” ball cap.
The second suspect is described as being about 5-foot-11 with a slimmer build.
In the surveillance video it appears the suspects approached the store from Tree Ridge Circle from the south and fled north toward Dawn Street.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Central Florida CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and can be eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000 in this case.
