June 20, 2013
Atascadero police are seeking the identity of two men who allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven store in an early-morning invasion Thursday.
According to police officials, the men entered the store at 8000 El Camino Real just before 3 a.m. armed with a semi-automatic pistol and demanded cash from the register.
A clerk complied, and the men left with money and cigarettes, fleeing in “an unknown direction,” according to a release from police officials.
Police said one man was wearing a light-colored, pullover sweatshirt, dark blue jeans, and white and black shoes, and was armed with a black and silver-colored handgun.
The second suspect was wearing a yellow-brown ball cap with a blue brim and the word “Rams” on the front. He was also wearing a black, zip-up jacket, dark-colored long pants, and black and white shoes. The suspect was wearing what appeared to be a white plastic bag with holes cut into it over his face.
Officers released photos of the suspects.
