On Thursday, May 19, at about 9:39 PM, Cloverdale Police responded to the 600 block of N. Cloverdale Blvd on a report of an armed robbery. Upon arrival, officers contacted the store employee who told them that two male subjects entered the convenience store wearing ski masks, brandished a firearm, and demanded money. The employee told the officers he provided the suspects with an unknown amount of money and the suspects left on foot toward North St. While on scene officers contacted a witness who reported that he was driving on North St. and saw a silver Honda Accord parked on North St. He observed two subjects seated in the driver and passenger seats with their seats leaned back which he felt was suspicious. The witness reported that he looked up and saw two subjects walking toward the Quick Stop putting ski masks on over their heads. The witness reported that he began erratically honking his horn to alert the clerk. The witness reported that the driver of the Honda attempted to intervene by blocking him from driving further on the street. The witness reported that he saw the two subjects exit the store and as they began running toward the Honda, one of the subjects fired three rounds from an unknown type of firearm. The witness reported that he was not struck by the gunfire. The two subjects got into the Honda and the driver fled the scene heading toward Hwy 128.
During the investigation, officers recovered the three shell casings from the crime scene. Officers learned that the silver Honda Accord, license number 4VZM327, described by the witness at the scene, matched a vehicle that was stopped earlier at 8: 27 PM by Cloverdale Police.
