Rotten Robbie robbed

 

The convenience store attached to the Rotten Robbie, located at 310 N. Whisman Road, was robbed on Friday, police said.

A man in a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans walked into the store at about 7:32 p.m. on June 29 and demanded money from the woman behind the counter, according to Jaime Garrett, spokeswoman for the Mountain View Police Department.

The man did not appear to have a weapon, nor did he say he was armed, Garrett said. However, the clerk said she felt threatened and so she complied with his demands -- handing over an undisclosed amount of money.

The man fled the Rotten Robbie on foot, but the clerk said she did not know which way he headed. Garrett said the clerk described the robber as a Hispanic man in his mid-20s. The hood of the man's sweatshirt covered his mouth and chin, she said.

Police searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect, Garrett said.

Deja vu:

Web Link

....perhaps the robber is imaginary, or made up? Or at least the word is getting out that you don't need a gun to rob this gas station.

(If indeed real, not judging the decision to hand over the $...just sayin'...)

Good catch on the Deja Vu. Maybe they need to hire a security guard that works from 7 to 8pm. Are there no security cameras? Seems fishy that it's almost identical to when this happened in May.

Sounds like the punk that robbed the deli on Fairchild last month. That lady is sweet and I had just filled up half an hour before this happened. Wish I would have been there.

Is this the same cashier? I'm a suspicious person so of course I start to think "inside job", but that's just where I start. I'm sure the police are just as suspicious if not moreso.

I shop at Rotten Robbie quite often for my lottery tickets. I know the sweet little miss. I know there is a security camera. It seems a little odd that they were not on at this time of evening! The sweet little miss.......may not be soooooooo sweet......!

That poor lady who has always been so gracious and freindly each time
I visit this business does not need sick people suggesting it was
an inside job. Shame on all of you!

Just a few years ago someone was shot and killed at the Carls Jr. The locals don't forget.
