Outside a busy furniture store at Sawgrass Mills mall in Sunrise Tuesday afternoon, two armed men rushed up to an armor car guard and demanded money, according to the FBI.

The robbers got away with money — police wouldn’t say how much — and now the FBI and the Sunrise Police Department are asking for help in finding them.

The robbery happened about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday outside American Signature Furniture, 12801 W. Sunrise Blvd.

According to the FBI, two men, speaking both Spanish and English, approached the guard near the Garda armored car. No shots were fired and no one was injured, but the men were able to escape with money in a white four-door Lexus.

Because of “the direction the robbers came upon the guard,” there was no physical description available, according to the FBI.

Cameras did capture images of the getaway car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
