SUNLAND (CBSLA.com) – Authorities are looking for two armed men who robbed a Sunland gas station while donning ski masks early Saturday morning.
The robbery occurred at a Shell gas station in the 8400 block of Foothill Boulevard just after 3 a.m. According to Los Angeles police, two suspects in blue ski masks and blue surgical gloves entered the station and demanded cash from the clerk. One was brandishing a revolver.
The suspects got approximately $600 in cash from the register. They also took another $200 from the clerk as well as his cell phone.
The two fled on foot, police said. No one was hurt.
The suspects were described as Black, between 18 and 25 years of age and 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall.
The gas station owner, who didn’t want his last name used, said the suspects were experienced.
“They got everything they wanted,” Moses said, “they knew where the money was at and everything.”
The owner told CBS 2’s Joy Benedict the front door is supposed to be locked at that time of the night and there is also a panic button to alert authorities but he’s not blaming his employee.
“I’m glad my guy is okay,” the owner said, “he’s safe, nothing happened to him. That’s what matters.”
The owner said he is hopeful that the suspects will be captured quickly.
