MANATEE -- A 57-year-old man was robbed of his laptop computer late Tuesday while doing his laundry at an Ellenton apartment complex, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
The man was sitting in a chair when three suspects came into the laundry room at The Oaks of Ellenton, 1405 34th St. E., Ellenton. One of them came up from behind and wrapped his arm around the victim, while another snatched his Gateway computer off of the counter, according to a news release.
The suspects then fled.
Responding deputies, including a K9 unit, set up a perimeter, but the suspects could not be located.
The victim told investigators he probably would not be able to identify the suspects.
