According to a news release, officers were called to the 7-Eleven on East F Street at 3:07 a.m. The clerk reported a man came in and tried to rob the store at gunpoint.

He is estimated to be between 5 feet, 8 inches, and 6 feet tall, with a skinny build and wearing a dark-brimmed baseball hat, gray baggy hooded sweat shirt and matching sweat pants and a dark bandanna covering the bottom part of his face. He wore red-soled high-top sneakers and gloves. Police ask anyone with information on the robberies to call Sgt. Joseph Carrillo at (209) 847-2231.
