Workers robbed at gunpoint in Keyes

Authorities are looking for a man who robbed two people at gunpoint Wednesday who were working in a ditch in Keyes about 1:20 p.m. near Redwood and Washington roads.

The assailant pointed a sawed-off shotgun at the two workers and demanded wallets and cash, according to Lt. Bill Pooley with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department. Authorities said the two men complied and turned over $400.

Pooley said the suspect fled in the worker’s white company truck.
