Press release from the Eureka Police Department:
On 09/29/15 at about 10:40 p.m., Officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to a convenience store on the 1600 block of F Street for the report of an armed robbery that had just occurred. The store owner told Officers that a black male pointed a gun at him and took money from the register. Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
Officers reviewed store surveillance and saw a black male in all dark clothing and a blue hat enter the store and walk around while other patrons were shopping. The suspect then walked to the counter and pointed a handgun at the victim. The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash from the register before fleeing the store south on F Street. Based on a witness description, it is possible the suspect got into the passenger side of a dark colored full size SUV that was parked on Randall Street.
