SACRAMENTO — Police are seeking any information on a female who is suspected of robbing two businesses in the south area of Sacramento.

Two businesses in the south Sacramento were robbed at gunpoint within a few days of each other. In both cases the suspect is described at a white female in her 20’s.

On Friday evening August, 14 the suspect entered a yogurt shop on the 1300 block of Florin Rd. around 8:40 p.m. and robbed an employee at gunpoint. In one of the photos the suspect seems to be wearing dark shoes and tight dark pants, with a dark hooded sweater.

A few days later on Monday, Aug. 17 the suspect entered an ice-cream shop on the 6300 block of Riverside Blvd around 9:40 p.m. and again robbed an employee at gunpoint.
