The Bakersfield Police Department is asking the community’s help in identifying two men suspected in a Feb. 13 armed robbery of a Ming Avenue AM/PM.
Police said one of the suspects entered the convenience store brandishing a black semi-automatic firearm at the clerk. The suspect grabbed several packs of cigarettes and demanded the clerk to open the cash register. The suspect took the cash and fled out the door, where suspect No. 2 was acting as a lookout, police said.
In a news release, police said the first suspect is of a slim build, 5-foot-10 and was wearing a gray hooded sweater, black ski mask, brown pants, red shoes, black gloves and he was armed with a semi automatic firearm. The second suspect is described as 5-10, slim build and was wearing a black hooded sweater with brown pants and black shoes with white stripes. The race of either suspect has been determined.
The suspects were seen leaving the scene in a white sports utility vehicle, possible a Ford Explorer or Chevy Suburban. They were seen fleeing northbound on Wible Road, police said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident or the identity of the suspect is asked to call Detective Chris Feola (661) 326-3513 or the Bakersfield Police Department at (661) 327-7111.
