SAN JOSE POLICE RELEASE PHOTO OF SUSPECT IN ARMED ROBBERIES
San Jose police today are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who they say is responsible for four armed robberies carried out between October and January. The first robbery occurred Oct. 20 at the 1st United Federal Credit Union in the 6900 block of Santa Teresa Boulevard, Officer Jermaine Thomas said. A man robbed the credit union with a handgun and fled, Thomas said. He was described as Hispanic, in his 40s, standing about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing about 180 pounds and wearing a San Jose Sharks cap, a burgundy shirt and blue jea
ns, Thomas said.The second robbery occurred Oct. 30 at a Payless ShoeSource in the 1300 block of Blossom Hill Road. A man entered the store, displayed a gun and took off with cash, Thomas said. He was described as a Hispanic man between 50 and 60 years old standing about 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds and wearing a black sweatshirt with blue jeans. The third robbery was reported Dec. 10 when a man robbed the KeyPoint Credit Union in the 1100 block of North Capitol Avenue, Thomas said. The man entered the credit union, displayed a gun and left with cash. About a month later, on Jan. 14, a man robbed the same business in the same way, and fled in a white SUV. The suspect in both of those robberies roughly matched the description of the man who robbed the two other businesses.
