BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Police officials said two suspected men are wanted for robbery and conspiracy in Bakersfield.
On Wednesday, Feb. 6, at about 7:30 p.m., the Bakersfield Police Department said two men entered the Fastrip Food Store on South Chester Avenue.
Officials said while one of the suspected men distracted a store employee, the other suspect left the store with merchandise, without paying.
Authorities said the other suspect then exited the store and a store employee followed the suspects until a firearm was pulled out.
The store employee then fled and ran back to the store, according to officials.
The first suspect is described as a Hispanic man, in his 20s with a slim build, short black hair and a thin mustache. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and was armed with a handgun.
The second suspect is described as a Hispanic man, also in his 20s, with a heavy build and black short hair. He was last seen wearing a blue baseball hat with a white 'B' on the front, a blue and white jacket with a star on the chest, a blue and white plaid button-up shirt with a white shirt underneath.
Anyone with information is urged to call the BPD at 327-7111.
