Tampa Police officers are working to identify two suspects who robbed two victims at gun point on July 17. The victims arranged to purchase a pair of shoes from an individual they met online. They agreed to meet at the corner of Tampania Avenue and Tampa Bay Boulevard to buy the shoes from the suspect. While they were waiting, two Hispanic males in their late teens to early twenties arrived at the location in a Toyota Prius. One of the suspects pointed a silver semi-auto pistol at the victims and demanded their money. The suspects stole cash from the victims and fled the scene in the Prius.

Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay is offering a reward of up to $3,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the suspect in this case. Anyone with any information regarding this case and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at www.crimestopperstb.com or send a mobile tip using our P3 Tips mobile application, which is a free download for iPhones, iPads, and Droids.
