2 men rob Shell station in Dublin

Employee shocked with stun gun in Wednesday night attack

Two men robbed a Shell gas station in Dublin Wednesday night and shocked a gas station employee with a stun gun, a police lieutenant said Thursday.

The robbery was reported at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday at the gas station located at 8999 San Ramon Road, Dublin police Lt. Kurt von Savoye said.

The two suspects entered the station and demanded money from the cash register. At some point, one of the suspects used an electronic stun gun on the employee, who complied with the suspects' demands and allowed them to take cash from the register, von Savoye said.

The suspects fled on foot and have not been arrested as of this afternoon, he said.

The male gas station employee suffered minor injuries from the stun gun.

Both suspects are described as white men between 20-25 years old who were both wearing white T-shirts, black baseball caps and white bandannas over their faces, according to von Savoye.

One of the suspects was described as being 5 feet 9 inches tall with a heavy build and was also wearing a black sweatshirt. The second suspect was described as about 6 feet tall with a thin build, von Savoye said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Dublin police at (925) 833-6670
