Fremont police are looking for two men who they say robbed a retired U.S. Marine at gunpoint, took his wallet and later used his credit cards to make purchases at a 7-Eleven.
One of three video surveillance clips taken on April 9 from the convenience store on Mohave Drive shows the cashier handing what appears to be a credit card and receipt to one of the suspects before the men exit the store just after 2:30 a.m. The Marine told police he was robbed at the Bank of America ATM on Fremont Boulevard an hour earlier. The video does not show the ATM robbery.
The video surveillance shows the suspects as two 18- to 23-year-old men of Indian descent. One of the men was wearing a puffy grey jacket with a fur-lined hood and black cuffs, white-and-black shoes, and a large ring or splint on his right ring finger.
The other man was seen in the video wearing a black T-shirt with a graphic design, black-and-red basketball shorts, a black beanie with a zig-zag pattern and a ball on top, and a silver bracelet on his left wrist. The 7-Eleven clerk recalls both men speaking Hindi.
The 67-year-old Marine said the suspects fled in a white 1998-2000 Mercedes S420 or S500 model.
