Riverbank Police Services are asking for the public’s help in identifying a robbery suspect. On Sunday, May 1 at 10 p.m. a man in his late teens or early 20’s went into the Cruisers Gas Station located at 2201 Patterson Road. The suspect jumped the counter holding a large fixed blade knife and forced the clerk to open the cash registers. After stealing money he fled the business. Detectives describe the man as being five feet, eight inches tall and weighing approximately 160 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jeans, a black hat with ear flaps, had a red bandana covering his face and sunglasses.

If you can identify the suspect, call Detective Jon Gingerich at 209-863-7146 or you can leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636.

In another incident last Sunday, deputies responded with Consolidated Fire and EMS crews to the 5700 block of Rose Brook Court around 2:48 p.m. regarding a three-year-old boy who was a potential drowning victim. According to police, family members found the child in the pool and initiated CPR, along with a neighbor, until emergency workers were on scene. The child was transported via helicopter to Sacramento with a poor prognosis. Detectives responded to investigate and said, unfortunately, the child did not make it.
