RIVERSIDE (CBSLA.com) — Riverside police Thursday asked for public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with robbery at a department store last month.
A 911 caller reported a robbery in progress on the third floor of the Nordstrom store at Galleria at Tyler around 10 a.m. on June 28, according to the Riverside Police Department.
