Robbers Armed With Gun, Machete Strike Three Times On South Coast This Week

Authorities are looking for a dangerous duo of robbers who have struck three times this week, armed with a handgun and a machete.

The two robbed a gas station in Ventura late Tuesday night, and one in Santa Paula early Wednesday morning. They were wearing hoodies and ski masks.  Then, two robbers matching the same general description stuck a different Ventura gas station Wednesday night.

No one was hurt, but during the robbery in Santa Paula the man armed with the machete used it to damage some store displays.
