Crime briefEl Super Mercado robbed
Two men wielding handguns robbed El Super Mercado, a grocery store located at 311 Moffett Blvd., last week, police said.
According to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie, the robbers entered the store at about 8:20 p.m. on Nov. 10, pointed their guns — one black and one silver — at the two store clerks and demanded the money in the store's two registers.
The clerks — a man and a woman — were the only two people in the store, Wylie said. The clerks opened their registers and the armed men took the cash and fled. The robbers were last seen running eastbound through the market's parking lot.
Palo Alto police assisted in the search for the two robbers, who were described as black men in their late twenties, about 6 feet tall and wearing black hooded sweatshirts, Wylie said. One of the men was heavy set, the other had an average build. Police were unable to locate the suspects.
There was no security footage of the robbery, Wylie said. The two clerks were the only witnesses.
