San Mateo County sheriff's officials on Wednesday released sketches of two men wanted in a Monday night armed robbery of a gas station in Millbrae.
The pair told a clerk to open the store's safe around 10:15 p.m. at the Valero gas station at 491 El Camino Real. One of the men had a semi-automatic handgun, sheriff's officials said.
The clerk told the two he could not open the safe and the two then pushed the clerk out of the way and took money from the cash register, according to the sheriff's office.
The robbers were last seen wearing dark hooded sweatshirts and masks. Deputies are describing the first suspect as 6 feet tall and about 200 pounds and the second suspect as 5 feet 6 inches tall and about 180 pounds.
The two were last seen leaving the area on El Camino Real in a Jeep or a silver or dark-colored 1990s model SUV, according to the sheriff's office.
Deputies are asking for the public's help in finding the two men.
Anyone with more information on the robbery is asked to call Detective Victor Bertolozzi at (650) 259-2321 or email him at
