BRADENTON, Fla. - Manatee County deputies are looking for three suspects they say held up a man at gunpoint.

The robbery happened at the 5100 block of 14th Street West early Thursday morning.  Gary Riegel reported that he had just returned from the Racetrack gas station located at 5300 14th Street W.  Upon arrival to his home, a small compact vehicle pulled up next to him with an unknown white female driving.  The female inquired about directions to Palmetto. 

As the victim approached the vehicle, 2 black males got out of the vehicle and pointed a gun at the victim demanding money and his wallet.  The victim complied and then was frisked then pistol whipped.  The black males got in the vehicle and the female fled east out of the trailer park.

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