Brother, sister victims of Manatee robbery

BRADENTON — An 18-year-old woman told deputies that she was robbed at gunpoint in her parents’ car Friday as her younger brother sat beside her in the passenger seat, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

The woman said she was getting out of the car at her home, in the 500 block of 60th Avenue East, when two men approached her just before midnight. One of the suspects pulled out a black handgun, pointed it to the back of the woman’s head, then demanded money.

The suspects got away with the woman’s necklace and $9 from her brother, according to the sheriff's office.
