Two Men Rob Garden Grove Convenience Store at Gunpoint

Two men robbed a Garden Grove convenience store at gunpoint Monday, authorities said.

The robbery was reported about 12:45 a.m. at the 7-Eleven store at Nelson Street and Garden Grove Boulevard, Garden Grove police Sgt. Charles Loffler said.

The 26-year-old clerk confronted one of the suspects about stealing an item from the store, Loffler said. That suspect took the item from his pocket and placed it on the counter as the second suspect pointed a black revolver at him.

The first suspect "jumped the counter and took an unknown amount of cash from the register," the sergeant said.

The suspects fled on foot north to Pearl Street, got into a 1990's four-door car and drove west on Pearl Street. No one was injured, Loffler said. The suspects were Hispanic men between the ages of 18 and 25 years old, he said.

One was 5 feet 7, 120 pounds, unshaven and wearing a black and gray hooded sweatshirt, black T-shirt and black baseball cap. The second suspect was 5 feet 5, 120 pounds, with a gray hooded sweatshirt, black baseball cap and black revolver.

Anyone with information about the robbery was asked to call Garden Grove police at (714) 741-5800.
