Detectives have been working to develop leads in an armed robbery that took place in October and are now asking for help from the community. The 25-year-old victim, who is deaf and mute, was standing in the 8300 N. 40th St waiting for a bus in the early morning hours when the suspect approached, used a black handgun to strike the victim in the head multiple times, and robbed him.
This composite sketch was developed based on the victim’s recollection of events. Tampa Police Detectives are now asking our community to look closely at the sketch and see if it resembles someone they may know. Anyone who may be able to provide information that can help detectives identify and apprehend this suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay, Inc.
