2 Ventura Circle K's Hit By Armed Robber In 1 Hour

Friday July 26, 2019

      Two Ventura convenience stores were robbed by a masked gunman within one hour early Friday morning.

    The first was around 3:40 AM at the Circle K at Main and Laurel streets.

    The second happened about an hour later at the Circle K on Petit near Telephone.

    In both cases a male with a mask and armed with a handgun demanded cash from the clerk.

    The clerk complied and the suspect fled in a silver vehicle that looked like a Prius.

    No one was injured.

    These were the latest in a series of armed robberies at convenience stores and other businesses in Ventura recently.
