By Staff | Nov 24, 2008

Police are looking for two suspects who allegedly robbed two Cape Coral

men outside a local pool hall Saturday morning.

The suspects attacked the two victims at their car in the parking lot

of Diamond Billiards, located at 1242 S.W. Pine Island Road, at about 1

a.m., police reports state.

One of the suspects reportedly punched a victim, who was outside the

car, after he refused to give them his money.

The second victim was initially inside the vehicle, but exited to stop

the suspect from battering the first victim, reports said.

One of the suspects allegedly grabbed the second victim’s wallet from

the car, with cash and contents valued at $46.

Both suspects were gone when police arrived. They are described as an

African-American man approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a gray hooded

sweatshirt with dreadlocks; and a Caucasian man with blond hair, 6 feet

2 inches tall.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Cape

Coral Police Department at 574-3223 or Southwest Florida Crimestoppers

at 1-800-780-TIPS.

The victims told police they wish to press charges for robbery and

aggravated battery, according to reports.
