Four people in Florida's capital city were robbed at gunpoint within a six-hour time period.

The first robbery happened at 8:45 Friday night in the parking lot of Colony Club Apartments on Conradi Street. The victim was exiting his car when the robber approached him.

"He pulled out a gun, demanded the car keys and then fled. The victim's car is still at large. We're looking for a '95 tan Mercury Marquis," explains Tallahassee Police LT Brian Donaldson.

The second robbery happened about two hours later just before 11 o'clock Friday night when two men pulled a gun on the clerk at an accessories store on Gaines Street and forced him into the restroom. They got away with some clothes and money from the cash register.

Three hours later at around 2 o'clock Saturday morning, a robber held up the cashier at the Sunstop Inland Store on Woodville Highway. The suspect handed the cashier a note demanding money from the register.

"When the clerk refused to give him the money, he pulled his jacket back and displayed the handle of a pistol and then the clerk opened the cash register and the suspect took an undetermined amount of cash and then fled the store," says Leon County Sheriff's LT Rory Robbins.

And finally, at 2:15 Saturday morning, another carjacking happened when a man who was lost pulled over near the Calypso Cafe on Mill Street and got out of his car.

The armed suspect approached the man from behind, stole his wallet and drove off in his car. Although a gun was used in all these robberies, none of the victims were hurt.

The suspect in the first and second robbery are both described as a black male, 5’10” inches tall, wearing dark clothing. The suspect in the second robbery at the accessory store has a Jamaican accent.

While the suspect in the convenience store robbery is described as a black male, six feet tall, wearing a white hooded shirt with "South-Pole" written on the front.
