Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is asking for the public’s help identifying and tracking down two masked men who robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store at gunpoint early this morning.

The suspects entered the store, located at 11700 S. Cleveland Avenue, at 2:53 a.m.  The black male suspect brandished a small caliber black semiautomatic pistol and demanded all the money from the cash register, while the Hispanic male suspect jumped over the counter with a black backpack and grabbed an undisclosed amount of money, as well as multiple Instant Lottery tickets.  The men quickly fled the store on foot, headed westbound on Palm Drive.

Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).  All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000.  Tips may also be made online at or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
