Police seek suspects in two SSF robberies

South San Francisco police officers are looking for two suspects in separate robberies that occurred within 45 minutes of each other late Tuesday night.

At approximately 10 p.m., a man walked into a motel in the 700 block of Airport Boulevard, asked for a room and then told the manager that “this [was] a stickup” and demanded cash. The unknown man tried unsuccessfully to grab the cash behind the counter and knocked the phone away from the manager before fleeing the scene.

The suspect, a black man in his 30s, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build and short black hair, wearing a white shirt and red pants, was last seen running south on Airport Boulevard.

Forty-five minutes later, along the 400 block of Linden Avenue, a Hispanic man in his 30s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, in a long white shirt and blue jeans walked into a gas station and asked to purchase two packs of cigars. When the clerk opened the cash register, the suspect said he had a gun and took all the $10 and $20 bills from the register before fleeing west on Miller Avenue.

Anyone with information on either incident should contact the South San Francisco Police Department at (650) 877-8900.
