JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Three men are being sought, one as a person of interest, in a strong armed robbery last month at a Smokers Video store on the Westside.

Police said two men went into the store in the 5500 block of Normandy Boulevard about 7:30 p.m. Dec. 23 and jumped over the counter. One man pushed the clerk to the ground and both men stole money from the cash register and items from behind the counter, police said.

Investigators said a third man is a person of interest and may have acted as a lookout.

One of the robbers is described as a white man between 20 and 30 years old, between 5 feet and 5 feet 5 inches tall, and between 140 and 150 pounds. He had short black hair and was wearing a white shirt and black shorts.

The second robber is described as a black man between 20 and 30 years old, between 5 feet 5 inches and 6 feet tall, and between 160 and 170 pounds. He had short black hair and was wearing a red shirt and dark jeans.

Anyone who has any information about the men or the robbery is asked to call the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
