Officers in Modesto say a man in a Captain America mask robbed two businesses Monday.
At about 2 p.m., the masked man robbed a Check ‘N’ Go check cashing location on Oakdale Road. According to police, he brandished a gun and took cash from a register behind the counter.
Thirty minutes later, while officers were at the first robbery, a second robbery was reported at the William Douglas Jewelry store on Floyd Avenues. A man was reported to be wearing a Captain America mask and had a gun, matching the description of the man who robbed the check cashing business.
The man is described as being in his late 20’s to early 30’s with a heavy build. He was wearing a grey Harley Davidson hoodie, black pants and, of course, a Captain America mask.
