Police Release Surveillance Images of Armed Robbery

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying an armed robbery suspect.

On Saturday, April 4, 2009, at 3:10 p.m., a male suspect walked into the Fast Stop (5601 Wilkinson Street) and robbed the store clerk and a patron at gunpoint.  The suspect ordered the victims to the ground and fled to an awaiting vehicle.  He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.  No one was injured during this hold-up.

The suspect was described as a male White adult, 22-29 years old, 5'8" - 5'10" in height and weighing between 145 - 165 pounds.  He was wearing a long black wig, dark sunglasses, a blue Colts hat, a black hooded sweatshirt, white t-shirt, dark blue jeans, and black/white tennis shoes.  He had a thin build and was unshaven.  A witness believed the suspect had a faded tattoo of a red arrowhead on his left hand.  The vehicle was described as a white 4-door, possibly an older Toyota Camry (square shape).

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 of up to $1,000.
