Danville police are investigating a weekend armed robbery at the Danville Olde Town Arco service station on San Ramon Valley Boulevard at Boone Court across from the Livery.
Sgt. Dan Hoffman said around 9:28 p.m. Saturday night two males entered the gas station. One of the men displayed a compact chrome semiautomatic handgun and demanded money.
They took an undisclosed amount of cash from the cash register and then left the business. The pair fled east behind the gas station.
Police officials set up a perimeter and used a canine to track the fleeing men, but they eluded capture.
The suspects are described as black men, one medium height and heavy build, between 20-30 years old, and the other tall and slender in his late teens or early 20s.
The investigation is continuing. Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Danville Police Department at 314-3700.
