Two masked men robbed a store clerk at gunpoint in Monterey at 7:04 p.m. Friday. Monterey police Sgt. Jeff Jackson said the men pointed a handgun at the clerk of Glass Roots, 765 Lighthouse Ave. The clerk cooperated, Jackson said, while the men took an undisclosed amount of cash, damaged some store property and ran out the back door. The employee waited in a storeroom for the men to leave before calling police.
When a business district sinks as low as the Lighthouse Avenue corridor has, an increase in violent crime is not a surprise.
