Two masked gunmen robbed a convenience store in south Palo Alto Thursday evening, prompting a police manhunt.
The men walked into Eli's Market at 3487 El Camino Real at about 7:45 p.m., pulled out handguns and demanded money from the store clerk, police said. After the clerk gave them money from the cash register, they allegedly fled the scene on foot.
The incident was the second armed robbery in the city in two days. Police are also searching for a man who robbed an ARCO gas station on San Antonio Road Wednesday evening.
No one was injured in either robbery.
Police said the suspects in Thursday's robbery are: a white or Hispanic man in his 30s, 6 feet tall and weighing 150 pounds, wearing all black and a black mask; and a black man approximately 30 years old and also 6 feet tall and weighing about 150 pounds wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans with a red design down both sides, a black mask and black shoes.
Officers with K-9 police dogs searched for the suspects throughout the Ventura neighborhood Thursday evening but could not locate them.
