Video Store Robbery

A video store clerk in Montecito Center was robbed at knife point on Wednesday evening, right at closing time.

Just before 10 p.m. last night two men entered the Silver Screen Video store at 409 Third Street and walked around the store as the lone female clerk was preparing to close.  One of the suspects approached the clerk, produced a knife, and demanded cash from the register.  The clerk complied and the suspects ran out the front door and west through the parking lot.  Both suspects were wearing black hoodies with the hoods up.   Suspect #1 was an African American male, 5”3”, 140 pounds and armed with a knife.  Suspect #2 was a white male, 5”7” and 140 pounds.
