TARA -- A driver who gave a ride to two men to the 6500 block of Stone River Road in East Manatee reported being sucker-punched by one of them and robbed of $30 this afternoon.
The attacker had a pocketknife in his hands, according to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report. A friend of the victim said one of the two men went through the victim's pockets.
The attackers were described as being in the early 20s and standing about 5-foot-10 to 5-foot-11. One wore dark shorts and a white shirt, and the other wore a Tampa Bay Rays hat and reading glasses.
They were last seen heading east on Stone River Road.
