Two armed robberies occurred at San Leandro businesses last Friday – the Papa John’s pizza place and the Super Mercado Mi Tierra where both held up by gunmen.

The Papa John’s at 2198 East 14th Street was held up by a pair of robbers who cornered an employee just outside the back door of the restaurant as he was working around 8:30 p.m.

The suspects both had handguns and ordered the worker back inside the restaurant, according to Sgt. Bob Sanchez of the San Leandro police.

Six other Papa John’s workers were in the restaurant and the robbers demanded that they all lay down of the floor. The robbers collected the victims’ wallets and purses as well as money from the register and fled on foot.

No customers were in the restaurant at the time of the robbery, Sanchez said.

The suspects are described as black males in their late twenties, both wearing black hoodies and masks over their faces. One was over six feet tall, 170 pounds with a slim build and dreadlocks. The other was about 5-foot-5, 160 pounds with a medium build.

Earlier on Friday, the Super Mercado Mi Terra – a small market specializing in Hispanic foods at 14340 East 14th Street – was also held up.

A man with a gun wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a white bandana over his nose and mouth approached a clerk at around 1 p.m. and demanded that he open the register drawer. The robber grabbed the cash and fled.

That suspect was described by witnesses as an Hispanic male between the ages of 25 and 40, between 5-foot-7 and six feet tall, and between 220 and 280 pounds.

San Leandro Folks !!! Please place Cameras (good ones) though out your business's and catch anyone who try's to rob us. This is NOT Oakland (or Hayward) No one should get away with robbery here in San Leandro. We should up the penalty for robbers whom rob in San Leandro. Twice the Penalty that Oakland or Hayward gives. This gives thieves to think twice about committing a crime in San Leandro. We are NOT Oakland! Crime should NOT be tolerated here in San Leandro!
