An internet cafe was brutally robbed early Monday morning, reports an officer in Leesburg, Florida. The investigation is still in progress. A Leesburg officer went on scene to investigate and speak with the victims.
Several suspects entered the cafe and told those present to "stop, sit down, and don't move," states a victim. Even one man that was outside smoking was directed into the business and told to lay on the floor, says another victim.
The suspects then approached the front desk and demanded money. One victim, who was an employee of the cafe, said that one of the two suspects had a gun, which may have been either a 22 MM or 357 magnum. The same victim went on to say that they took money out of the register and her kid's medication, which the suspect threw back at her before leaving.
The final victim said that she was struck in the face when she refused to give them money. In pain, she stayed on the ground, holding her face, causing her to be unable to see which direction they fled to.
Several victims contributed descriptions of the suspects. One victim stated the first suspect is approximately 200 pounds, semi-heavy set, with gray and white facial hair. He was wearing a gray ski mask and black pants. The second victim was described as six feet tall, weighing about 140 pounds, and held a silver pistol.
