Gunman holds up teens

POSTED August 6, 2013 11:19 p.m.

Three teenagers were robbed at gunpoint Sunday night while parked outside a Turlock fast food restaurant.

The robber only got a few dollars from the victims and no injuries were reported from the incidents, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis.

The robbery occurred around 2 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of the Taco Bell at 2050 W. Main Street.

The victims — an 18-year-old woman, an 18-year-old man, and a minor, age unknown — were sitting in their car outside the restaurant when they were approached by a man unknown to any of them.

The man talked to one of the victims for a brief time before pulling a handgun out of his waistband, Lewis said.

The man pointed the gun at one of the victims and demanded money from the three. The 18-year-old woman handed over the few dollars she had and the suspect fled. He was last seen running eastbound through the parking lot.

The suspect was described as a black male around 18 to 25 years old. He is between 5 feet 8 inches  and 5 feet 10 inches tall and approximately 110 to 130 pounds. He had an Afro hair style and a goatee.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Officer Lee Medlin at 668-5550 ext. 6760.
