Deputies say the man entered the Internet Cafe, 5835 Memorial Highway in Tampa, about 3:13 a.m., carrying a plastic grocery bag and using another to cover his hand to imply he had a weapon. The man demanded money from the employee, then fled on foot southbound on Memorial Highway.
The man is described as black, 20-30 years old, 6 feet 1 and between 180-200 pounds with a medium/muscular build. He was wearing a black hat, cloth or shirt covering face, long-sleeve black-collared shirt with red/green stripes diagonal across the front, black pants, and black shoes with white trim/soles. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 247-8200. To be eligible for a cash reward, call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously at crimestopperstb.com, or text "CSTB plus your tip" to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637).
