Special to THE CITIZEN ( , Lehigh Acres Citizen

In hopes of identifying two armed robbers who held up a Lehigh Acres Subway at gunpoint last month, Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers has released three additional surveillance photographs.

Just before 6 p.m. June 1, two masked black men ran into the Subway, at 4316 Lee Blvd., demanding cash while displaying firearms. One suspect ran toward the back of the business, carrying a small silver handgun, while the second suspect jumped over the counter, pointing a black handgun at the cashier.

While holding the employee at gunpoint, the men demanded all the cash from the store's register. In fear for her life and those of the customers present, the cashier complied and men quickly left.

Authorities are still searching for two robbers who held up a Subway in June at gunpoint.

The first suspect is described as between 20 and 30 years old, tall with a thin to average build and having long dreads, with one possibly dyed blonde. He was wearing a black shirt, which he used to cover his face and nose, as well as a wide-brimmed hat.

The second suspect is also between 20 and 30 years old, tall and possibly with dread-styled hair. He was wearing a Halloween skeleton face mask and carrying a silver handgun.

"This was clearly a very bold and brazen robbery," Trish Routte, Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers coordinator, said last month. "They committed this violent act during a busy time of day and on a major roadway which was heavily travelled at that time."
