Police are investigating a rash of violent armed robberies along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in south Stockton.
The most recent incidents include two armed robberies that happened Monday afternoon. During one of the robberies, a car wash employee was held up at gunpoint.
Investigators said it's still unclear if Monday's robberies are connected to the other 10 that Stockton has seen since Thursday. But, what is clear is the suspects behind them are bold, demanding and seem to be operating with a nothing to lose mentality.
The robberies are happening both day and night. The suspects approach their victims with guns in hand, demanding cash, sometimes leaving on foot, while other times jumping into a getaway vehicle.
Sometimes, the suspects target store employees, and other times they go after a person walking down the street.
