PINELLAS COUNTY - Detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office are seeking the public’s help in identifying a pair of suspects in connection with five recent robberies in which Asian restaurant owners have been targeted.

The suspects have been described only as two young black males armed with a handgun. They have fled the scenes in either a burgundy or red 4-door American made car, or in a small black foreign car with a partial license number of C17--- or G17---.

The most recent robbery occurred shortly after 11:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 11, 2008.

The robberies began in September of 2007 and have all taken place during the late evening hours in residential areas of Palm Harbor, Oldsmar, Dunedin, Clearwater and Seminole. The victims’ identity and the exact locations of the robberies will not be provided due to the fact that the suspects remain at large.

According to detectives the robberies appear to be preplanned and take place after the restaurants close or when the owner leaves for the night. In each case the victim has arrived at their home where they are immediately confronted by two young black male suspects who are brandishing a handgun.

In each robbery, the suspects covered their faces or wore masks to conceal their identity. The victims were then robbed of cash, wallets, and purses. In two of the robberies the victim was struck with a handgun by one of the suspect resulting in a minor injury.

Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to contact Sgt. Michael Holbrook of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Robbery Unit at 727-582-6200, or to remain anonymous Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS.
