Deputies are searching for four men involved in a brazen armed robbery at the Fun Spot 2 at 5529 Manatee Avenue West.
The men, covered completely in clothing, masks and gloves, went into the business at 11 p.m. Thursday night carrying weapons, according to a report from the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. Two of the suspects were armed with semi-automatic pistols and one suspect was armed with an AK-47 Assault Rifle.
The suspects ordered all nine of the customers and the staff at Fun Spot 2 to get on the ground, according to the sheriff's report. The men took the victim`s purses and wallets before going into the back office where one of the men emptied the cash register and took the safe.
All of the suspects left the store and sped off in a small dark colored 4-door sedan, with unknown plates.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
