2 robbed in apartment parking lot

MANATEE -- Two persons were robbed at gunpoint as they walked in the parking lot of Harbour Point apartments in the 4500 block of 70th St. W., Bradenton, about 11:40 p.m. Thursday, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Two males, one armed with a dark pistol, approached the victims and demanded everything they had. One of the victims surrendered $20 and a cell phone. He started running up the steps and was told to stop or he would be shot. The robbers then fled north out of the parking lot.

Law enforcement officers unsuccessfully searched for the suspects.
