ALAMEDA -- Police are hoping someone will recognize a man who vaulted a counter of a liquor store in the city's West End and stole money from the register at gunpoint.

No one was hurt during the June 25 robbery at Dave's Liquor, 1401 Webster St., police said.

Two employees were behind the counter when the man entered about 9:15 p.m., Alameda police Sgt. Wayland Gee said. No one else was inside the business.

The suspect may not have initially noticed the employees because he appears to pause when he spots them after he jumped on the counter, Gee said.

After taking money from the register, the suspect fled from the store on foot.

Police described him as a black man between 18 and 25 years old, 150 pounds and about 6 feet tall. He has a dark complexion and a light mustache and was wearing a white baseball cap with a gray plaid pattern on the bill and on its front. The man was also wearing a yellow shirt, a grey pullover hooded sweat jacket, faded blue jeans and black Nike shoes.

Alameda police ask anyone with information to call 510-337-8340.
