A man claiming to have a gun robbed the 7-Eleven at 708 Colorado Ave. in Palo Alto’s Midtown neighborhood.
At 10:40 p.m. Saturday, the man came to the counter with an alcoholic beverage, “reached into his jacket, claimed to have a gun, and demanded money and a mobile phone the clerk was holding,” police said.
The clerk complied and the man fled on foot eastbound on Colorado Avenue, in the direction of Highway 101.
The clerk, who was uninjured, described the man as being at least 30, wearing a black beanie and a black mask with a Raiders logo on the left cheek, as well as a dark jacket and blue jeans.
Police are circulating surveillance photos of the robber and ask anyone with information to call them at (650) 329-2413.
Anonymous tips can be e-mailed to [email protected] or sent via text message or voicemail to (650) 383-8984.
Police said there is not believed to be any connection with a robbery at the same store on Aug. 7.
“Two suspects in that case have been arrested by another law enforcement agency as part of a broader investigation involving a robbery series in multiple jurisdictions,” the department said.
