Santa Rosa police investigating armed robbery at market

Police in Santa Rosa are investigating an armed robbery that occurred Friday night.

On Friday at 10:17 p.m., officers responded to a report of a robbery at Lola's Market at 1680 Petaluma Hill Road.

Police said a suspect, armed with a handgun, entered the store, pulled the clerk down to her knees and demanded she hand over her cell phone and the cash register.

The clerk told the suspect she did not have the register, and she took him to the store office, where a second employee handed over several hundred dollars to the suspect.

The suspect then left on foot with the stolen cash.

The victims were not injured during the robbery.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man, possibly in his 30s, about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds with a thin build.

He was wearing a blue hooded jacket, blue jeans and black shoes.
