SHERIFF SEEKS INFORMATION ON AGGRAVATED ROBBERY IN SAN ELIZARIO, TX
Crime Stoppers of El Paso is assisting the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in identifying and locating the persons responsible for an Aggravated Robbery in San Elizario, making this the
Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Thursday, September 16th, 2010, Sheriff’s deputies responded to an Aggravated Robbery at America’s Cash Plus, 11970 Socorro Road in San Elizario. When they arrived, they discovered that a clerk was closing the store when she was approached by two subjects wearing black ski masks who forced her back inside the store.
Once inside, she was taken behind the counter and was forced to open the safe. Because of nervousness, she had difficulty opening the safe and was slapped by one of the offenders until she was able to open it. The money was placed into a black bag that the offenders had brought with them.
The victim’s hands were then tied behind her back with duct tape and the subjects left the store in the victim’s vehicle, which was later found abandoned in the 11,500 block of Peters in Socorro. The victim was able to free herself and get help from a nearby business.
The suspects are described as being in their early 20’s, slim build, wearing dark clothing. One suspect was wearing gloves and Nike athletic shoes, possibly Nike “Shox,” and the other had a tattoo on the top of his hand.
