Tri-E-Z robbed by man with semi-automatic gun

Menlo Park store targeted again

The clerk at a Menlo Park liquor store got an unwelcome customer Wednesday night, July 25. Around 10:30 p.m., a man brandishing a semi-automatic handgun entered Tri-E-Z Foods & Liquor and demanded cash, along with three bottles of alcohol, police said.

He ran away southbound on El Camino Real after the clerk complied by handing over money, two bottles of Jack Daniel's whiskey and one bottle of Hennessy cognac. No one was injured during the robbery.

The suspect wore a black hooded sweatshirt, black sunglasses and a black mask, according to the police report. He also wore blue rubber gloves, stained jeans, black tennis shoes with a white stripe, and carried a black backpack.

The store, located at 1820 El Camino Real, was also robbed in 2007 and again in 2011.

Anyone with information about the crime can call the police department at 650-330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at 650-330-6395.

Other news reports say the perp was white. Why is that information missing from this report?
