BRADENTON, FL- Manatee County detectives are looking for three men they say held up a family and robbed them at gunpoint as they unloaded groceries from their car.

It happened early this morning at the Palms of Cortez Apartments on 5th Street East.  According to a Sheriff's Office report, Tracy Tamburin and her son were unloading groceries from the family car when three men approached them pointing a gun and demanding money. The son ran upstairs into the apartment and jumped off of the apartment balcony to get away.  Tracy and her daughter  were told to lay face down.  The suspects then took the victims purse and cash and ran off.

There were no injuries. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
