Roseville PD

ROSEVILLE, CA – The Roseville Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a man who robbed a liquor store and pepper-sprayed the clerk on Tuesday night.

At approximately 11 p.m. Tuesday, a man went into the Smart Stop Liquor store on Foothills Boulevard, threatened the clerk with a handgun and demanded money. After taking money from the cash register and the clerk’s personal property, the robber pushed the clerk to the ground and pepper-sprayed him in the face.

The suspect left the store and was last seen walking northbound toward McAnally Drive. Paramedics treated the clerk at the scene for exposure to pepper spray, but he declined further medical attention.

The robber was described as a male wearing a black puffy jacket over a bright blue hooded sweatshirt, khaki pants and white sneakers. He had his hood pulled all the way up, and wore a ski mask concealing his face. He spoke with an accent and might be Hispanic, but that isn’t confirmed.

Anyone with any information that could help solve this crime is asked to call Roseville Crime Stoppers at (916)783-7867, or submit a tip through our website (www.roseville.ca.us/police, and look for “submit a tip” on the sidebar), or text a tip to 274637, starting the tip with the word “ROSEVILLE”.
