FRESNO - At 1:30 am on March 11th, 2017, a robbery involving four young men took place at the ARCO am / pm gas station located at the corner of South Chestnut and East Central Avenues in Fresno. Two suspects entered the store and walked directly to the back where the alcohol is stocked. Each one then grabbed an 18-pack of beer and immediately ran toward the door.
A customer at the counter, acting as a Good Samaritan, grabbed both of them by their shirts to try and prevent them from escaping. During the struggle, one of the young men dropped the beer on the ground. The suspects were able to free themselves and run through the parking lot.

A third suspect then appeared from the side of the parking lot and pointed a gun at the customer. During the commotion, a fourth suspect picked up the case of beer that was dropped and ran away with it. The customer and store employees made a wise decision not to chase after them any further. The total loss was $30 worth of beer.
Surveillance cameras captured images of the suspects from both inside and outside the store. No arrests have been made and detectives have not identified any of the suspects. Listed below are basic descriptions of everyone who was involved.
Suspect #1 in black sweatshirt: Hispanic, 5’6”, thin build, approximately 16 - 18 years old. He has a dark mark under his left eye, which is possibly a mole, tattoo or piercing.
Suspect #2 in red Fresno State sweatshirt: Hispanic, 5’5”, thin build,
approximately 16 - 18 years old.
Suspect #3 in red sweatshirt with gun: Hispanic, 5’6”, stocky build, late
teens or early 20s.
Suspect #4 in black sweatshirt: Hispanic, 5’7”, thin build, approximately
16 - 18 years old.

Anyone with additional information on this case should call Fresno County Sheriff’s Detective Floyd Avila at (559) 600-8060 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP (7867). You will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a $1,000 cash reward.
