Police are searching for the suspects involved in two different crimes in the city, a, aggravated gas station robbery and a breaking and entering into a store.
Shortly after midnight on Monday, the Sunoco gas station at 940 E. 222nd St. was robbed at gunpoint by what police believed were two African American men.
Police reported the two suspects charged into the business when the front door was unlocked by an employee at shift change. Both suspects wore gloves and hooded sweatshirts with their faces completely covered.
One suspect was very aggressive and struck one of the female clerks in the head with a handgun, police said, resulting in a non life-threatening injury to the clerk.
This same suspect was wearing what appears to be a gray sweatshirt or lightweight jacket with slightly different-colored sleeves and hood, officials reported. There was a “Nike Air” logo on the left breast of the jacket/sweatshirt.
Police said no one else was injured during the robbery. The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register drawers.
Another crime in Euclid involved a breaking and entering.
On Thursday at approximately 5:15 a.m., three unknown people in two Dodge Caravans arrived at Neighbors Choice store, located at 525 E. 185th St., police said.
Authorities reported one of the vans was rammed into the building to gain access to an ATM machine and the cash register. After taking the contents out of the ATM and register, the suspects left the scene in a blue Dodge Caravan.
Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact 216-289-8505.
