Please see the press release below from the Sheriff’s Department regarding an attempted armed robbery on the 1400 Block of Cedar on Thursday evening.
“On December 2nd at approximately 7:30 pm a resident was approached by a single suspect in his driveway as he exited his vehicle in the 1400 block of Cedar Street in the city of San Carlos.
The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 16-20 years of age, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The suspect appeared to be holding a semi-automatic hand gun down to his side as he demanded the victim’s wallet.
The victim refused and began to yell at the suspect. The suspect turned and walked back towards a waiting vehicle that was parked around the corner.
The victim said that the suspect never pointed the weapon at him and that there were two additional suspects. One was standing in front of his neighbor’s residence and the other was waiting at the vehicle.
The two additional suspects were described as black males each 16-20 years of age, medium build and wearing black hooded sweatshirts and blue jeans. The associated vehicle was described as an older model gray passenger vehicle, possibly a Mercury. The three subjects fled in the vehicle northbound on Cedar Street.
Deputies responded to the area and conducted an extensive search for the suspects and vehicle with negative results. The case has been assigned to the Sheriff’s Office Detective Division for follow-up.
