Bradenton, FL-  Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputies are looking for two men wanted for armed carjacking.

It happened Thursday afternoon at a home at the 3100 block of 35th Avenue West in Bradenton.  According to Deputies, one of the suspects was standing in the driveway of the location when the two victims pulled up.  A second suspect came out from the rear of the residence pointing a shotgun at the couple. 

The suspects demanded the victims leave their belongings in the car and get out.  The couple did just that.  The suspects then jumped into the vehicle and took off.  No one was injured.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

    "Anyone with information is urged to contact the Manatee County Sheriff's Office."

    Do the victims know the year, make, model, color and tag number of the car that THEY were driving? It would be easier for the public to keep an eye out for the vehicle if we knew what to look for. Did the victims notice anything about the attackers? Gender? Height? Weight? Age? Hair? Skin? Clothing? Tattoos? Piercings? If the public received ANY description of anything, it would be easier for us to help.
