On May 30, 2013 at approx. 9:45 P.M. Officers of the Woodland Police Department were dispatched to the area of Fifth and North St. on a report by the victim of being robbed at gunpoint. The victim, 46 year old Woodland resident Horacio Hernandez, said he was returning home from 7-11, 1229 E. Main St., when he was approached by two Hispanic male juveniles, 16-17 years old. One of the suspects pulled a silver revolver from his waistband and demanded Hernandez give them everything in his pockets. The second suspect took Hernandez' property and both suspects left on foot northbound on East St. from Lemen Av.

Hernandez was not injured. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-661-7800.
