SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) – A female store employee was brutally beaten during a robbery Friday night at a Santa Rosa pharmacy, police said Saturday.
According to a police report, the two men entered CVS on Mendocino Avenue shortly before 8 p.m. Friday, jumped over the counter and demanded cash and drugs.
They then directed a female employee to leave the front counter empty. The robbers then asked her to open the safe at the back of the store, but she could not comply. At that time, according to police, one of the suspects began beating the woman with his fist so much that she later had to go to the emergency room.
After officers arrived, the woman was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspects are described as Black, in their teens and about 5 feet 9 inches tall.
One of the suspects was wearing a gray-black hoodie with black pants. The other was wearing a black hoodie with blue and white jeans. Both suspects wore masks and fled the scene with cash and medicine. In the final scene they are running towards Steele Lane but no vehicle is seen in relation to them.
Santa Rosa Police are asking anyone who witnessed the incident or has information to contact them through an online tip line at www.srcity.org/CrimeTips or call detectives at (707) 543-3595.
A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered by the Sonoma County Union Community Engagement and Safety Rewards Fund for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator.
