Two young men are still being sought in connection with an armed robbery at a St. Augustine Shores home March 26, and deputies have released a sketch of one of the men.

Deputies responded to the home on Phoenetia Drive at 11:30 p.m. and met with the 55-year old man who was robbed.

The victim told them that after getting off work, he stopped at a U.S. 1 South bank and then drove home.

Before getting out of his vehicle, two men in a white sedan drove by, turned around and stopped in front of his home, deputies said. They said one of the men asked for directions and then the two brandished handguns and demanded money.

One of the men struck the victim in the face with the gun when he told them he didn't have any money, deputies said. They said the suspects removed the victim's wallet that contained assorted credit and ID cards and drove off.

The victim was treated at the scene by St. Johns County Fire-Rescue.

The robbers were described as black man in their late teens to early 20s and both about 5 feet 5 inches tall. One was slightly stocky, clean cut in appearance and had a dark complexion. The other had a medium build and medium complexion.

The two were driving a white four-door sedan, possibly a 2000 model Ford Taurus.

Anyone with any information about the robbers' identities is asked to call Detective Chris Collins at 904-209-3981 or Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS (8477).
