Sacramento police ask the public’s help identifying a man suspected of robbing a North Sacramento market last week.

A man entered Xiong’s Market at 1010 El Camino Ave. about 10:49 a.m. April 13, brandished a handgun at a clerk and demanded money, according to a Police Department news release. After obtaining an undisclosed about of money from the business, the man fled on a BMX-style bicycle.

The man was captured on surveillance video during the robbery. He is described as white, in his 30s, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with white stripes, a black baseball cap with a gray bill, gloves, wire-rim glasses and a bandana around his neck.

Anyone with information pertaining to the robbery is asked to call the Police Department’s dispatch center at 916-264-5471 or Crime Alert at 916-443-4357, or text a tip to 274637. Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
