BRADENTON, FL-  The Manatee County Sheriff's Office is investigating an Armed Carjacking, Kidnapping and Armed Robbery.

It happened early Friday morning at the 1100 block of 57th Ave. East, in Bradenton.  According to a deputies report, three victims had just dropped off a friend when they approached the intersection of 57th Avenue East.  As they came to a stop a man came up next to their vehicle and pointed a gun at the driver.  The suspet ordered the driver to the passenger seat.  The suspect then jumped into the drivers seat and drove them to a home on 57th Avenue Terrace East, where he ordered them out of the vehicle.

Two other male suspects came out from behind a home and ordered the victims to give them their money.  One of the victims was struck on the head and face several times.  After stealing the money the suspects fled from the scene. 

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