Video Store Clerk Robbed at Knifepoint

Silver Screen Video on Third St. Robbed by Two Men

Two men wearing black hoodies entered Silver Screen Video in the Montecito Plaza Shopping Center around 10 p.m. Wednesday and robbed the female clerk at knifepoint, police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher said.

The suspects apparently walked around the store waiting for the clerk prepare to close before demanding cash from the register. The suspects then fled through the door and across the parking lot.

According to the report, the armed suspect is described as black, 5 feet 3 inches tall and 140 pounds. The other suspect is described as white, 5 feet 7 inches tall, and 140 pounds. Both were wearing their hoods up during the robbery.

I'm not thrilled that the entire area around Montecito, United Market and Whole Foods is getting dicier and dicier with crime If you look at the crime maps on the SRPD website you will see that the crime comes down into San Rafael from the Canal and then fans out into the areas around 2nd and 3rd up to Heatherton and the first few blocks of fourth and also around San Rafael High School neigbhorhoods-and I'm talking violent crime-knives, guns, fights and even that one murder that happened on the west side of Whistlestop next the that seedy bar.
