SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — San Jose police released surveillance video Tuesday evening that shows two armed male suspects violently robbing a food supply business and striking an employee.

Police are asking anyone with information about the suspects’ identities or their whereabouts to contact them immediately.

The assault and armed robbery occurred Saturday, April 23rd, at 7:39 p.m. at HP Food Supply, which is located at 830 South Third St. in San Jose, according to police.

The suspects pulled up to the business in an early 2000s silver Acura TL with no front plate license plate. The suspects got out of the car and went inside the business.
One of the suspects was armed with what police described as a “long barreled Uzi type sub-Machine gun.”
The suspect with the machine gun pointed the weapon at an employee sitting at a desk and then punched the employee in the face. The employee then appears to pass out as the suspect takes cash and personal items from the victim, police said.
Meanwhile, the second suspect steals items from a back room.

The suspects fled the scene in the vehicle and have not yet been identified, police said Tuesday evening.

The suspect with the gun is described as a Hispanic man between 30 and 49 years old, standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds. He had short black hair and a mustache and was wearing a white undershirt, blue hooded sweatshirt, brown construction-type boots, black pants, and dark-colored sunglasses.

His accomplice was also described as a Hispanic man standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds, but he is estimated to be between 20 and 35 years old. He also had black hair, but was wearing a black T-shirt with “DBD” lettering on the front, gray sweatpants, gray tennis shoes and a black ski mask.

Anyone with information regarding this incident are urged to contact Detective Mike White of the San Jose Police Department’s Robbery Unit at (408) 277-4166 or may remain anonymous by either calling the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at (408) 947-STOP (7867), or clicking this link: https://www.p3tips.com/tipform.aspx?I…

Anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect may be eligible for a cash reward from the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers, police said.
