Ventura police are searching for two men involved in a brutal armed robbery of a CVS store on Friday that sent two employees to the hospital. Both employees were in stable condition on Friday.
At about 3:25 a.m., two mask men, one armed with a handgun and the other with a baseball bat, entered the 24-hour-store at Telegraph Road and Victoria Avenue in Ventura, police said.
One of the suspects threw a female employee to the ground, causing significant head trauma, police said. The suspects then forced another employee to open the cash registers.
