Crime Briefs

Deli robbed

Police are looking for a man that held up the Fairchild Delicatessen on Wednesday afternoon.

The man entered the store, located at 277 Fairchild Dr., at around 2:25 p.m. May 9, threatened the clerk with what he said was a gun concealed in the front pocket of his sweatshirt, and ran off after the woman gave him "less than $250" from the deli's cash register, according to Mountain View police spokeswoman, Liz Wylie. He was last seen running east on Fairchild Drive.

Besides the robber, the 42-year-old clerk was the only person in the store at the time of the crime, Wylie said. She was not hurt.

She described the bandit as a Hispanic man in his 20s in a black hooded sweatshirt, Wylie said.

Apartment burglarized

A bike was stolen from an apartment in the 2700 block of Latham Street on Mother's Day, police said.

According to police spokeswoman Jaime Garrett, the renter was out of the ground floor apartment from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on May 13. When she returned she noticed the rear sliding glass door was open a little bit, but did not notice anything was missing.

The next day the victim noticed that a child's mountain bike was gone and called the police, Garrett said. Police do not know how the burglar (or burglars) gained entry to the apartment. There were no signs of forced entry and the 27-year-old woman said that she locked her apartment before leaving.
