The man, who was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, came up behind two employees from the Dollar Tree store in Patterson just before 7:45 a.m. as they were attempting to make the drop and ordered them to hand over a deposit bag, according to Patterson Police Sgt. John Walker. Afterward, they fled in an unknown direction, he said. Victims did not have any other descriptive details, Walker said.
