Police Are Looking To Identify Two Robbers

The Sacramento Police Department is seeking assistance in identifying two robbery suspects.

On Saturday, April 11, 2009, at 5:35 p.m., the victim was purchasing a pack of cigarettes from the clerk at the Bonfare Market, 3100 Broadway.  The victim used a $100 bill to make the purchase.  When she was given her change, a male who had been waiting behind her, ran up and stole the money from her hand. 

The suspect was described as a male, Black, adult, 18-21 years-old, 5'7" to 5'8", 170 pounds, black dreadlocks, a light mustache and a thin build.  He was wearing a grey zip-up sweatshirt with a design on it.  Under the sweatshirt, he wore two T-shirts, a black T-shirt under a white one.  He was also wearing dark blue jeans with designs on the back pockets and black and white tennis shoes. 

The suspect had entered the store with another male.  Both suspects were photographed  watching the victim remove the $100 bill from her wallet and following her as she approached the counter.  The second suspect was a male, Black, with at least one earring, wearing a black T-shirt with a marijuana plant on it, over a red long sleeve shirt and black pants.  The Police Department is looking to identify both suspects in the attached still photographs. 

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip by texting to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
