Help Needed to Identify Robbery Suspects

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the community's help to identify two armed robbers.

On August 1, 2011, at approximately 9:50 p.m., two suspects entered a business at the corner of Norwood and Jesse Avenue.  The suspects, one armed with a gun, demanded the clerk to open the cash register.  After taking some money, the suspects fled to a black vehicle believed to be an Acura TL with high definition lights, tinted windows, and chrome rims.  A black Cadillac Escalade was also seen driving away at the same time as the suspects, but it is unknown if it was related to the suspects.

The suspects are described as being male Hispanics or Asians, 21-29 years old, 5'8-5'9", medium build, one wearing wire-rimmed glasses.   

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357) or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
