Alleged armed robber stopped by employees
February 28, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Vincent Carter

A 26-year-old Richmond man was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly trying to rob the La Raza Market at 380 N. Ellsworth Ave. in San Mateo at gunpoint, but was disarmed and detained by two store employees.

Just before 10 a.m., San Mateo police were called to the location on the report of the armed robbery and found two employees detaining the man, identified as Vincent Carter. When officers arrived, there was still a fight in the store, according to police.

Carter was taken into custody and the sawed-off shotgun allegedly wielded by the man was seized as evidence, according to police.

There were no serious injuries, according to police.
