Two separate Buena Park Chevron gas stations were robbed at gunpoint over the weekend and police say they believe one man is behind both crimes.
Surveillance video of the first robbery shows the man police are looking for. Armed with a handgun, the Hispanic male between 35 and 45 years old has a shaved head and tattoos on his lower right arm. Police say the man is between 5'10" and 6' tall, weighing around 180 - 200 pounds.
The first robbery occurred on Friday night around 10:15 p.m. at the Chevron gas station in the 6300 block of Beach Boulevard. After the clerk gave the man some money from the register, the suspect fled in a vehicle described as a black 2009 to 2014 Ford F-150 extended cab pickup truck. The truck is said to have towing mirrors, chrome bumpers and rims, a black grill, and tinted windows.
Police say the suspect struck again, this time at a different Chevron located in the 7900 block of Valley View Street. This time, the cashier fought back, and was pistol-whipped and shot in the leg. The suspect fled the scene again, this time without cash. The clerk was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police say the same man is suspected to have committed both robberies. They're asking for the public's help in identifying the man who Buena Park police describe as "armed and dangerous."
Anyone with information was urged to call Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227).
