ST. PETERSBURG -- A St. Petersburg Times carrier was robbed Thursday of his wallet and $100 in coins at Eighth Avenue S and 43rd Street.

Robert A. Zaiser, 59, was substituting for a carrier at 5:20 a.m. when a man with a handgun approached him at the intersection, said George Kajtsa, police spokesman.

"Give it up," the robber demanded. "I'm not kidding."

Zaiser gave him the bag of coins and his wallet, which contained $6.

Police have no suspects in the case.
