The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the community’s help identifying two young males they say robbed someone at gunpoint at a Rancho Cordova light-rail station last month.

Security cameras recorded the two suspects approaching a man at Cordova Town Center Station near Folsom Boulevard and Olson Drive at around 3:30 p.m. on March 16, according to a Sheriff’s Department media release. The suspect dressed in a red Jordan-brand sweatshirt, blue and black athletic shorts and black slip-on sandals pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded money, which was handed over.

The young man and his accomplice, dressed in a maroon Aeropostale hoodie, gray shorts and black Nike slip-on sandals, then fled the scene on foot.

Detectives are asking anyone with information relating to this incident to contact the Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP. Tip information may also be left anonymously at www.sacsheriff.com or by calling (916) 874-TIPS (8477).
