Reward Offered in Random Bandit Robbery Series

A group of unknown suspects are wanted for a series of seemingly random attacks on businesses throughout San Diego.

San Diego Crime Stoppers and the San Diego Police Department Robbery Unit are seeking the public's help in locating a group of unknown men connected to the Random Bandits robbery series. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the identification, location and apprehension of the suspects.

Police said since Dec. 15, a dozen businesses with no connection or pattern have been attacked by one to three suspects. Not all have been armed robberies, and those that have were with a handgun, a knife or both.

The suspects are all described by police as 20- to 30-year-old dark-skinned males with medium builds. Witnesses and surveillance tape suggest the suspects consistently dress "monochromatic," with no obvious symbols or designs, and they wear dark colored hoodies or long sleeves.

Police said it's possible the suspects are driving a dark colored sedan similar to a Toyota Camry or Corolla.

The robberies include a tax preparer office, hotel, taco shop, Subway sandwich shop, liquor store, pizza place and others. A full list is available here.
