Fresno 7-Eleven Becomes An Inconvenience Store For Two Armed Robbers

posted on December 6, 2016

The attempted armed robbery of a 7-Eleven in California quickly became more of an in-and-out than two would-be criminals anticipated. Fresno police have revealed surveillance footage from last Monday around 2 a.m., showing the exact moment a man burst into the establishment with a rifle pointed at the cashier, followed closely by a female accomplice. However, almost immediately, the employee at the checkout grabbed his own gun, fired a single round at the two suspects and sent them both scampering back through the store entrance. 

Investigators are now searching for the man and woman, who escaped on foot running towards a nearby apartment complex. The male with the rifle is described as Hispanic, approximately 25 years old, and wearing a hooded sweatshirt and black pants. The woman, also believed to be Hispanic, was wearing a darker sweatshirt and black pants, with a black mask pulled up around her chin and mouth.
