Help El Cerrito Detectives Identify Robbery Suspects 16-20961

On October 23, 2016, at 1925 hours, an unidentified suspect entered the Subway sandwich shop located at 11430 San Pablo Avenue. The suspect asked about the cost of a sandwich and then left to get some money. At 1935 hours, the suspect returned to complete his order and was accompanied by a second suspect. An employee began making the sandwich while a second employee was preparing to ring up the order.

As the transaction was taking place, one of the suspects jumped over the counter, shoved an employee to the ground and then struck the second employee numerous times in the face. The suspects asked several times for the employees to relinquish the money from the business.

Unfortunately, both suspects fled the scene without being apprehended. The employee who was punched in the face numerous times was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The second employee did not sustain any injuries as a result of the robbery.
