2 Men In Pickup Truck Sought In Robbery

PALM COAST, Fla. – Flagler County deputies are asking for the public's help in identifying two men who robbed a Palm Coast man as he was out for a walk Tuesday evening.

The 32-year-old victim told deputies he was walking westbound on Oak Trails Boulevard at Blare Drive in Palm Coast at about 7 p.m. He said a dark blue, older model Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck with two men inside pulled up and asked him for a cigarette.

As the victim reached into his pocket, the passenger got out of the vehicle, pushed the man face-first into the ground and ordered him not to look at him, according to deputies. The victim said the man pointed a silver revolver handgun at him, deputies said.

After removing the victim's wallet and cigarettes, the passenger got back into the truck, which then headed westbound on Oak Trails Boulevard toward Old Kings Road.

The driver of the vehicle is described as a black man with two gold teeth, 6 feet 1 inch tall and 230 pounds, with short, black hair. He was wearing a red shirt and black shorts.

The passenger was described as between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall and between 190-200 pounds, with dreadlocks just below his ear. His right ear was pierced with a small diamond earring. He was wearing a black shirt and black jeans.

The robbers' truck also had silver lower trim, an extended cab and a Reese trailer hitch.

Anyone with information on the robbery or the robbers' identities is asked to call the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at 386-313-4911.
