Police: 2 Suspects Sought In 7-11 Robbery In West LA
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police on Friday asked the public to help identify two men suspected in a convenience store robbery in West Los Angeles.
Early in the morning on Oct. 6 at around 5 a.m., an employee and a store manager were working inside a 7-11 store located in the 11600 block of Wilshire Boulevard when two African-American males entered.
One of the suspects — who both appeared around 20 years old, approximately 6 feet tall and about 150 pounds — ordered an employee to lie face down on the floor.
Surveillance video shows the suspect then dragged the manager from the front of the store to the area behind the cash registers.
Once the suspect and the store manager were behind the cash registers, the suspect ordered the manager to open the safe. When the manager said that he could not unlock the safe, the suspect demanded that he open the cash registers.
The manager complied and the suspect removed an estimated $200 from one of the registers. Both suspects then fled the store.
Both suspects are considered armed and dangerous and were last seen wearing white plastic painter’s suits, gloves and painter’s masks covering their faces.
Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call West L.A. Robbery Detectives at 310-444-1520, or for anonymous tips, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
