RIPON — The investigation into a Ripon armed robbery that occurred in mid-April is continuing today, according to police First Sergeant Steve Merchant.
The South County Crime Stoppers are offering up to a $1,000 reward leading to the identity and the arrest of the suspect or suspects in the case who allegedly used a black semi-automatic hand gun in the incident.
The clerk at the Shell Station convenience store was robbed at gunpoint in the predawn hours of April 19. A customer was also threatened by a man described as being either white or Hispanic, in his 20s, standing about 5-foot-8 with a thin build.
Merchant said the man was wearing a dark ski mask with a dark long sleeve T-shirt and blue jeans, with black and white shoes. The victims did not sustain any physical injuries as the robber fled on foot with a small amount of currency.
Sgt. Merchant is asking anyone with information regarding the case to call (209) 823-4636. Those calling will not be required to give their name to receive the reward.
