A Menlo Park resident escaped injury in an armed robbery Wednesday night, police said. Officers were dispatched at 10:22 p.m. to the 1300 block of Chilco Street on a report of the robbery. The victim told officers that he arrived home from work and got out of his car when two suspects approached him. “Give me what you have,” one suspect said as he pointed a knife at the victim. The second suspect stood behind the victim with a tire iron, police said. The victim gave the suspects his wallet, which the suspects took and emptied of $800 before dropping the wallet on the ground near the victim’s car.
Both suspects were last seen running south on Hamilton Avenue and both are still at large. Police are describing one suspect as a black man in his 20s, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds. He was wearing a black ski mask that covered his head except for his eyes. He also had on a black sweater and black Adidas sweat pants with white stripes on the sides. Police are describing the other suspect as a Hispanic man or a Pacific Islander in his 20s, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head and the strings of the hood tied, which limited the view of his face. He also had on black jeans, police said.
