The Orange County Sheriff's Office is continuing its search for a man they say committed a strong-arm robbery in the Habanero's parking lot across from UCF.

At approximately 2:17 a.m., according to a release from OCSO, the victim was on the phone when a white male approached him and demanded his property. When the victim refused, a fight broke out between the two leaving the victim seriously injured.

The suspect left the scene in a dark-colored four-door vehicle, the release states. The man OCSO is looking for is about 6-feet tall, is in his late teens to early 20s and has blonde hair.

Crimeline is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for details about the crime or information about the location of the suspect.
