Contact :Steve Sexton, Sergeant, Woodland Police Department    530-661-7800
On 05-30-2013 at approx. 9:59 P.M. Officers of the Woodland Police Department were dispatched to a robbery which occurred near Quik Stop Market at 10 Kentucky Av. The victim, 22 year old Ryen Hirschenhofer, was walking westbound toward Quik Stop when he was approached by two Hispanic males in their 20's. One of the men asked the victim for a cigarette then pulled a gun from his waistband and demanded all of the victim's property.

The victim gave his belongings to the first suspect and noticed the other suspect was also holding a gun at his side. The suspects left on foot westbound on Kentucky Av and the victim left eastbound on Kentucky Av. The victim was not injured during the robbery.

This was the second robbery involving armed suspects approaching single victims on foot near convenience stores in Woodland. Anyone with information about this or the previous incident are encouraged to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-661-7800.
