Armed robbers storm apartment on San Veron

 

Police are looking for two men who they say robbed four people at gunpoint in their San Veron Avenue apartment Monday.

The holdup occurred at around 10:30 p.m. in an apartment building on the 800 block of San Veron, where two of the victims lived. Police say the residents, a man and a woman, both 21, were hosting two male guests. When someone came to the door they answered it, expecting more friends.

But instead two armed men entered, one wielding a shotgun and the other an automatic weapon, according to police spokesperson Liz Wylie. They took cell phones and an undisclosed amount of cash from the four victims and then left.

The men were well disguised, Wylie said, and the victims "did not recognize them or their voices."

Both men were described as Pacific Islanders in their late teens or early 20s, wearing black pants and black hooded sweatshirts and with fabric covering their faces. Both were around 6 feet tall, and one was about 200 pounds, while the other was about 250 pounds, according to the victims' descriptions.

Anyone with information is urged to call police at (650) 903-6344.
