Men steal victims' money, clothes in numerous Broward County robberies

Armed robbers believed to be involved in at least half-dozen hold ups

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – A pair of armed robbers are believed to be responsible in at least a half-dozen cases throughout Broward County where victim's were left without their money or clothes.

The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating two of the cases. The first occurred Oct. 28 at a Subway restaurant in Tamarac, and the other occurred on Oct. 31 at a Pick & Go convenience store in Pompano Beach.

Surveillance video from the Subway at 4601 N.W. 31 Street shows two masked men, who were wearing gloves enter the restaurant at about 10:30 p.m. through a side door.

One of the robbers pressed a handgun to an employee's cheek while the other robber told another employee to give them the money from the cash register.

After taking the money, the robbers ordered the victims to the back of the store and told them to take off their clothes.

In the Halloween robbery at 2301 NE 16 Street, the robbers, who were again wearing masks and gloves, went inside the store and demanded money from an employee. That victim was also ordered to remove his clothes and was struck with a gun.

Deputies said the men ransacked the business and shot the victim in the leg because they felt he was lying and hiding the money.

The FBI and multiple police departments throughout Broward County are also investigating similar robberies.

Anyone with information about these crimes is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
