Armed robber steals cash, cell phone during Bradenton home invasion

MANATEE -- A woman’s money and cell phone were stolen during an armed home invasion at her Bradenton home Tuesday morning, the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said.

At 11:30 a.m. at a home on the 2500 block of 51st Avenue Terrace West, the woman was sleeping on a couch. When she woke up, a gun was pointed at her face, a media release said. The two men asked her where her “stuff” was located, the release said.

She was taken to a bedroom, where one of the men emptied her purse and took her cell phone and some cash, the release said.

The men left when they heard the woman’s roommate in another room. The woman was not injured, the release said.
