VIDEO: Arco gas station clerk injured during robbery in American Canyon


AMERICAN CANYON (KRON) — An Arco gas station clerk sustained major injuries during a robbery in American Canyon on Wednesday night, according to police Chief Tracey Stuart.

Stuart said two men went into the gas station, located at 3462 Broadway, at around 9 p.m. The suspect left with a case of Red Bull without paying for it, police said.

The robbers ran to a vehicle just southeast of the gas station.

The store clerk followed the suspects and was struck by the vehicle, a silver or gray four-door sedan, as it left, Stuart said.

The clerk suffered a major injury to the left leg and was taken to a hospital.

The suspects are black males in their late teens or early 20s.

Both weighed around 140 pounds and had twisted short dreadlocks.

The 5 feet 5 inch tall suspect was wearing a white or gray Gap sweatshirt and red and white shoes, police said.

The 5 feet, 7 inch suspect possibly had a mustache. He was wearing a black T-shirt, blue jeans, and purple or blue basketball shoes with a bright orange lower rim, police said.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Napa County sheriff’s investigators at (707) 253-4591 or text NVSC and a message to 274637 (CRIMES). The sheriff’s office provides police services to American Canyon.
