Man Robs San Jose Store Disguised as Building Contractor

SAN JOSE – San Jose police are searching for a man who disguised himself as a building subcontractor and entered the back office of a shoe store where he robbed the manager at gunpoint last month, police said.

The suspect entered the DSW shoe store at 3530 Stevens Creek Blvd. in San Jose at about 7:18 p.m. on April 25, posing as a subcontractor in a yellow vest, hardhat and tool belt, police said.

The man walked right into the back office, asked to speak to the manager and then drew a handgun and demanded the victim open the store’s safe.

The gunman then fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash and drove away in a white car believed to be a Toyota Prius.

The suspect is described as a white man, 30 to 50 years old with a medium build and gray hair.

Anyone with information about the suspect is urged contact San Jose Police.
