Two men robbed a Palo Alto gas station at gunpoint Monday night, getting away with $400 in cash and miscellaneous items, Detective Brian Philip said.
The men were noticed watching the Valero station at 1963 El Camino Real about 6 p.m., Philip said. They then came back at 6:30 p.m. and robbed the attendant, who was not hurt.
The two men were last seen running north on El Camino Real. Both were Hispanic. One was between 18 and 25 years old, with a thin build. He was wearing a dark cap, black hooded sweatshirt, "Dickies"-style khaki pants and black shoes. The second man had a medium build and was wearing a black cap, white hooded sweatshirt, jeans and white shoes.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Palo Alto Police Department tip line at 650-329-2190.
