Police search for suspects in Menlo Park robbery

Menlo Park police today are trying to track down two suspects in an armed robbery carried out Monday afternoon.

The robbery occurred around 2 p.m. when a vehicle pulled up alongside two East Palo Alto residents who were walking in the area of Laurel Avenue and Durham Street in Menlo Park, police said.

A passenger in the vehicle exited onto the street and demanded jewelry and money from one of the victims at gunpoint, police said. The victim surrendered his belongings, and the suspect fled in the waiting vehicle.

The vehicle is described as a green 1990s Toyota four-door sedan, police said. The driver of the vehicle is described as a black woman in her 20s, and the man who robbed the victims is described as a black man in his 20s standing 5 feet 11 inches tall with a medium build, police said.

An investigation into the robbery is ongoing, and police ask that anyone with information call police at (650) 330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at (650) 330-6395. Bay City News
