St. Petersburg Police believe two suspects wanted for robbing three convenience stores on Feb. 5 and 11 also robbed a Sunoco Station Wednesday morning.
Just after 11 a.m. two suspects entered the Sunoco Station at 6800 4th St. N. Police say the scenario is the same as the other robberies.
Both men covered their faces. One suspect was armed; the other was not and went behind the counter to get the cash.
In this incident, the suspects not only robbed the cashier, but also robbed a delivery driver who was in the store at the time.
There is surveillance video from today's robbery; however, the suspects' faces are covered. Police believe the public can view a better description of the suspects on the still photo of the Kenwood Citgo robbery, which happened on Feb. 5.
