Deputies say a Florida man was robbed at gunpoint just before 4 a.m. Friday while he refueled his vehicle at the Murphy Gas on Harrison Road in west Bibb County.

As he stood at the gas pumps, John Lee told deputies he was approached by two young black men with bandannas over their faces. One of them brandished a gun, demanding his money.

The robbers left in Lee's vehicle, which investigators later found -- the engine still running -- less than a mile away at Chambers Cove Apartment Complex.

In a news release, the robbers were described as one wearing a black, hooded jacket and the other wearing a blue jean jacket.

The 54-year-old resident of Sun City Center, Florida, was not injured in the robbery.

Anyone with relevant information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME or the Bibb County Sheriff's Office at 478-746-9441.
