The Marysville Police Department is searching for a man who robbed a 7-Eleven while armed with a machine-gun, and a second man who may have been his accomplice.
Police say the robber walked into the store on East 19th Street, with a "Mac 10 style sub machine gun" a little before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night.
The robber demanded money from the clerk, who handed over approximately $1,000. After getting the cash the man ran out of the store and was last seen heading towards Covillaud Street on foot. The clerk was unharmed.
The man was described as being 18-25 years old, and around 5 feet 8 inches tall. He was wearing a black bandana over his face during the robbery.
Police are also asking for the public’s help identifying a possible accomplice. The person of interest walked into the store just moments before the robbery and asked about a piece of candy.
When the robber entered the store, the possible accomplice can be seen casually standing behind the robber. He appears to be a heavy set black man in his 20’s or 30’s, standing about 6 feet tall.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Marysville Police Department at 530-749-3900.
