Menlo Park store robbed at gunpoint

 

The Tri-E-Z convenience store on El Camino Real in Menlo Park lost cash and booze during an armed robbery on Monday night (May 30).

Menlo Park police said two suspects entered the store in the 1800 block of El Camino Real, near Spruce Avenue, around 10:30 p.m.

One man, carrying a gun, forced an employee to empty $400 out of the cash register while the other suspect stuffed six bottles of alcohol into a backpack before the pair fled, heading south.

A witness described the first man as either a Hispanic or white man standing between 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, weighing about 180 pounds, and wearing a black ski mask, dark hoodie, jeans, and gloves.

The second man appeared to be a light-skinned black man of similar height, weighing about 200 pounds, wearing a dark ski mask, dark hoodie sweat shirt, jeans, gloves, and carrying a black backpack, according to the police report.
