Caught On Video: Gunman Robs Store In Benicia

BENICIA (CBS SF) — An armed robber was being sought after targeting a convenience store in Benicia in a frightening incident captured on security camera video.

On Monday, Benicia Police released video of the robbery, which happened on Sunday evening around 6:25 p.m.

The video shows a man wearing a mask and black hoodie, and armed with a pistol, entering Bob’s Food & Liquor on West J St.

The man pointed the gun at the clerk and appeared to demand money. The clerk is seen quickly opening the register just as the gunman cocks the gun while continually pointing it at the clerk’s face.
