St. Petersburg, Florida -- The man wanted in the stun gun robbery outside a Tampa pharmacy is also being sought in the same style robbery at a St. Pete ATM.

St. Pete Police say on Feb. 28 around 6:30 p.m. a woman was approached from behind by an Hispanic man who demanded she withdraw all of her money.

He then began pushing buttons on the machine trying to withdraw funds from her account. The two began to struggle and the robber pulled out a stun gun and zapped her in the leg.

He then fled the scene in a dark 2007-2012 Toyota Camry that was last seen heading north on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N.

He is described as in his mid-20's, 5'09", with short, black hair, a thin build, and was last seen wearing a dark beanie cap, black jacket, black polo shirt with white stripes and gray shorts.

This same suspect is also believed to be responsible for the Feb. 27 robbery of a man leaving the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy on North Nebraska Avenue.

In that investigation, Tampa Police detectives discovered he had also left in a Toyota Camry that was parked nearby. Witnesses said a woman was driving. She is described as in her late 20's with brown hair in a ponytail.

If anyone has any information on the identity of The Stun Gun Robber they are asked please contact Detective Allyn Stone at (727) 893-4928 or the Communications Center at (727) 893-7780. They may also Text-A-Tip to 727-420-8911 or leave a confidential tip at 727-892-5000.
