Armed Robbery Suspects sought: Video images available

Riverside, Ca- Investigators from the Riverside Police Department and allied agencies are seeking the public’s help in apprehending armed robbery suspects who held up convenience stories in Riverside, Ontario and possibly more Inland cities over the past month.

On June 26, 2006 at about 1:30 p.m., two male suspects entered a gas station on Riverside’s Van Buren Boulevard and committed an armed robbery.

On June 22, 2006, Ontario Police Department responded to a similar armed robbery with the same apparent suspects, in their city, in which a convenience store clerk was shot after telling the suspects he was unable to open a safe. A female suspect joined the two males in this incident.

Both the June 22 and June 26 robberies were caught on surveillance video. Both incidents featured a light gold or silver minivan, similar to a Nissan Quest or Mazda MPV, which may have also been involved.

Riverside Police are also investigating a July 13, 2006, robbery, which appears to have been committed by at least one of the adult male suspects.
