SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Police in San Jose on Tuesday asked for the public’s help in locating and identifying a pair of armed robbery suspects who were captured on camera during a hold-up late last month.
On Friday, January 25, at about 10:13 p.m., an armed robbery occurred at the Shan Market located at 1250 E. Julian St. in San Jose.
