Four robbed at auto shop in North Fair Oaks

 

Two suspects robbed four people at an auto mechanic shop in unincorporated North Fair Oaks over the weekend, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were dispatched at about 8 p.m. Saturday to an armed robbery in progress in the 2900 block of Flood Avenue. Two suspects entered the shop and told everyone inside to get on the floor, Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said.

The suspects then took each person's belongings and fled on foot toward Dumbarton Avenue. Deputies arrived about 30 seconds after being dispatched but were unable to locate the perpetrators, Deputy Rosenblatt said.

Deputies said they do not know whether both suspects were armed, but one suspect reportedly carried a black semi-automatic handgun.

Both suspects were described as either Hispanic or light-skinned black men. One was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and white tennis shoes and the other was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and white tennis shoes, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Detective Lisandro Lopez at (650) 363-4055 or lxlopez@smcgov.org or Detective Hector Acosta at (650) 363-4064 or hacosta@smcgov.org. Callers wishing to remain anonymous can call the sheriff's tip line at (800) 547-2700.
