BRADENTON, FL- Manatee County Sheriff's Deputies are looking for two men they say broke into a man's home and robbed him at gunpoint.

It happened at the 1300 block of 56th Ave. Drive East in Bradenton early Tuesday morning.  According to a sheriff's office report, the victim was asleep in his apartment when he awoke to a man pointing a gun in his face.  The suspect demanded to know "where it was at?"

The victim gave the man his wallet and the suspect along with a second suspect left.  Anyone with information is urged to contact the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
