Fremont police are investigating two similar robberies that happened earlier this week and may have been committed by the same man. On Monday around 10:40 p.m., the man entered a Walgreens store at Decoto Road and Fremont Boulevard, grabbed a soda and went to the cash register, police said.
The man, who covered his face with a bandana, handed the store clerk a note and said he had a gun, according to police. The clerk, who never saw the firearm, gave the man an undisclosed amount of money and fled, police said.
On Wednesday at about 4:45 a.m., a man entered a 7-Eleven store on Central Avenue where he got a beverage and approached the cashier, according to police. In a similar fashion as Monday’s robbery, the man covered his face with a black and white cloth, handed the cashier a demand note and said he had a gun but never showed it.
The cashier complied with the demand and the suspect fled, police said. The suspect is described as a Middle Eastern or Hispanic man, about 25 years old, stands from 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall and weighs between 160 and 180 pounds. He had a goatee and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, dark sunglasses, khaki shorts, white ankle socks and gray shoes. The man may be linked to similar robberies in San Jose and San Mateo, according to police.
