The robbers were described as multiple white Hispanic males and one black male with dreadlocks between 16 and 20 years old, police said. They were 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 and weighed between 160 and 180 pounds.

One robber was wearing a red, white and black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants, police said.
