Suspects wanted for convenience store robbery

By BREAKING NEWS BLOG

Bakersfield police are asking for the public's help identifying two suspects wanted for robbery and conspiracy.

At 7:25 p.m. Wednesday, the two suspects entered the Fastrip at 1640 South Chester Ave. One suspect distracted the store employee while the first suspect took merchandise and left the store without paying.

The second suspect then left the store and brandished a gun when store employees chased after him.

The first suspect is described as Hispanic man in his 20s, 6 feet tall, slim build, short black hair and thin mustache. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and armed with a handgun.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, 6 feet tall, with a heavy build and black short hair. He was last seen wearing a blue baseball hat with a white "B" on the front, a blue and white jacket with a star on the right hand side (possibly a Dallas Cowboys team logo), a blue and white plaid button-up shirt with a white T-shirt underneath and jeans.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of these suspects is asked to call the Bakersfield Police Department at 327-7111 or Detective Marcela Garcia at 326-3511.
