Polk County Sheriff's Robbery detectives are seeking information about an armed personal robbery that occurred in Lakeland on August 28, 2011.

Around 6:40 p.m. that evening, the victims were in the area of the 1000 block of Innwood Lane in Lakeland when they were approached by two unknown black male suspects. One of the suspects pointed a black handgun at both victims, while the other suspect took the victims' cash and a yellow scooter. The suspects then fled the scene. The scooter was later recovered in a wooded area near Kelly Lane in Lakeland.

The suspects are described as: a black male, tall with a thin build, approximately 17-20 years of age, wearing a T-shirt and jeans or shorts, with dreadlocks and scars on his face; and a black male, approximately 16-17 years of age, approximately 5’08” tall, 150 lbs., wearing a T-shirt and shorts, and a “doo rag” on his head, possibly known as “Lil Mike.”
