OCEANSIDE, Calif. — Authorities asked for public help Thursday in identifying two men involved in a series of armed robberies at Oceanside convenience stores.

The late-night and early-morning holdups in which a masked man threatens clerks with a knife, screwdriver or silver pistol, have happened at seven different gas stations, 7-Eleven stores and Circle K markets between Oct. 13 and this week, police officials said.

The perpetrator in each case was a heavyset man about 5 feet 9 inches tall who appeared to be in his early to mid-20s and of Hispanic or Samoan descent.

He had the lower part of his face covered by a shirt or bandana and stole cigarettes as well as cash.

In the most recent robbery Wednesday morning, the bandit was accompanied by a thin companion in his late teens or early 20s, police said.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477 or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.com. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
