Robbers Armed With Shotguns Hit Market in Manteca, Police Release Suspect Photos

ID #16-438

Robbers armed with shotguns took over the Quick Stop convenience store at Main and Alameda streets late Tuesday night.
They ordered six customers and a clerk to get down on the floor. They took money and wallets as one robber held the victims at bay with a pump action shotgun as his accomplice collected cash.

Manteca Police said it was about 11:15 p.m. when the robbers surprised the customers crowded around the convenience store counter by raising a shotgun to the backs of their heads. They completely bypassed the store cash register.

“They weren’t in the store very long,” according to watch commander Sgt. Bryan Holland. “They got in and out fast and fled on foot down North Maple Avenue (a clock to the west.)”

No one was hurt in the robbery, Holland added. A robbery victim told officers the two black male adult suspects entered the business with the first one holding a black pump action shotgun who approached the register ordering the clerk to open the cash drawer.

The second robber reportedly entered a few seconds later and was not armed, he added. The first robber “began demanding money” from the customers inside the store after he ordered them to the floor. His partner began collecting the money and wallets from frightened customers. Both suspects then left the store.

The clerk never opened his register, police said, and no money was taken from Quick Stop. The total amount of money taken from the customers had not been determined at press time. Police described the suspect with the shotgun as a black man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a black and red checkered shirt underneath,. He was wearing black long pants and was about 6-foot tall and weighing between 160 and 170 pounds.

The second suspect collecting the money was also described as wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and standing about 5-foot-9 with a medium build. Both suspects reportedly had their hoodies up with black material covering their faces.
