Armed robbery suspect under arrest, 1 still on the loose


LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Two men are accused of robbing, and threatening to kill, a Bonita Springs man Sunday night.

Authorities are still searching for 21-year-old Milton Duque. Martin Gonzalez, 22, is now under arrest.

The victim told detectives he went to the Speedway, located at Old US 41 just before 8 p.m. on Sunday.

After making a purchase, he and a friend went to a home on Tango Drive, where they spotted a group of males across the street at a park.

Two of those men walked over to the Tango Street address, when one of the suspects pulled out a long barreled gun, pointed it at the victim and threatened to kill him.

Police say while one of the men struck the victim in the face with the gun, the second suspect kicked him on the ground, then took his cell phone and cash, before fleeing on foot. The victim sustained numerous injuries to both his face and ribs as a result of the attack.

Detectives believe Duque and Gonzalez are responsible for the armed robbery.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Duque is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.  Tips may also be made online at or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637) Keyword: REWARD.  Both men were last known to be living in Bonita Springs.
