Willows Chevron robbed at gunpoint
Willows police are searching for two suspects involved in the armed robbery of the Chevron gas station late Sunday.
Willows police Chief Bill Spears said two masked men entered the Chevron convenience store at Wood and Humboldt streets about 11 p.m. and confronted the 60-year-old female clerk with a pump-action shotgun.
The man is described as white, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, and was wearing a black ball cap, black jacket, blue jean shorts, black gloves, white knee high socks and brown shoes.
He was also wearing a respirator type surgical mask and a black bandana, Spears said.
The other man, who demanded money from the cash register, is believed to be a white male about 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing a black hoodie, white gloves and blue jeans.
He was also wearing a blue bandana and carrying a black bag.
“The suspects were last seen on foot running around the north end of the store,” Spears said. “No vehicle was seen or heard.”
Spears said the clerk turned over about $100 to the robbers, but the actual amount has not been determined.
Although visibly shaken by the robbery, neither the clerk nor patrons were harmed during the robbery, Spears said.
The clerk called 911 after the men left, and Willows and Orland police officers and Glenn County Sheriff’s deputies responded.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Willows police, 934-3456.
