Armed robber hits three 7-Elevens early this morning

By the Daily Post staff

Apparently the same gunman held up 7-Elevens in Palo Alto, Mountain View and Sunnyvale early this morning.

This first heist was at 12:20 a.m. at the 7-Eleven at 708 Colorado Ave. in Palo Alto. A man wearing purple Latex gloves holding a black semiautomatic handgun got about $200 in cash. The man was described as Hispanic, about 5-foot-7 with a thin build, wearing a black jacket and a red bandana covering his face. He was in his 20s. He wore a black hat with a red brim.

Nobody was hurt in the robbery.

Within the next hour, Palo Alto police were told that 7-Elevens in Sunnyvale and Mountain View were hit by a man with the same description. The location of the Sunnyvale 7-Eleven that was hit wasn’t immediately available, but the one in Mountain View he robbed was at 1951 Old Middlefield Way.

On April 1, a gunman held up at least four 7-Elevens — two in Redwood City, one in Mountain View and another in Sunnyvale.


  1. This robber is stupid. 7-11s put most of their money in a time-lock safe below the counter, and the clerk is unable to open it. that’s why he only got $200.
