Police are searching for two men after a truck crashed into a market in the Tower District on Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019.

Fresno police were seeking two suspects after a stolen pickup crashed into the front of a market early Thursday in the Tower District.

The incident occurred about 7 a.m. at the Food King, near Van Ness and Home avenues, near Fresno City College.

At the scene, a police spokesman said officers were not certain if the incident was part of an attempt to break through the bars on the front of the store, or whether it was a case of the driver losing control. But in an update, police reported the two botched an attempt to break into the store.

Anyone with information about the pair is asked to call Detective Ken Schneider at 559-621-5938 or Crime Stoppers with any information regarding the incident.

Jim Guy studied political science, Spanish literature and journalism at Fresno State University, and advanced Spanish grammar in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
