Trader Joe's employees were held at gunpoint by two men during an armed robbery of the Menlo Avenue store in Menlo Park around 9:15 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, police said.
The men entered Trader Joe's after it had closed and ordered two employees at gunpoint to lie face down on the floor and demanded money, police said. No one was injured, according to Menlo Park Police Department spokesperson Nicole Acker.
The men fled the scene with an estimated $4,600 in cash, Ms. Acker said. Officers searched the area but could not find the suspects.
The men were described as wearing white face masks. One was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and white sweatpants and the other wore gray sweats. Their ethnicity was determined to be Pacific Islander, based on sound of voice and appearance of skin, said Ms. Acker.
The Menlo Park Police Department says it is actively investigating the case.
Police ask that anyone who witnessed the incident or has information about the case to call the department at (650) 330-6300, or call an anonymous tip line at (650) 330-6395.
