FOX 4 Staff
TICE, Fla. - A bike riding ice cream delivery man was robbed at gun point Tuesday evening in near the Tice swimming pool.
A Lee County deputy responded to the call on Glenwood Avenue where the victim says he was approached by three men who asked him how much the ice cream was.
When the victim opened his case to show his goods one of the men pulled out a handgun and told the victim to hand over his money. The trio took about $70 and the victim's cell phone. One of the men tried to hit the victim in the face before they ran away on Lynneda Avenue.
While running the gunman fired a shot at the victim.
The three men were described as one black male wearing a red shirt, black shorts, skinny with tattoos on his neck and arms with a scar above one of his eyes. The two other suspects were Hispanic males. One was wearing no shirt, black shorts, white shoes, standing about 5'6" to 5'8", skinny in size with a pony tail. The other was wearing a white shirt, tan and white shorts, flip flops and heavy set.
A witness attempted to follow the suspects in his truck but stopped when the shot was fired.
