PALMDALE (CBS) — Sheriff’s detectives are looking for help to find the masked man who robbed a Palmdale gas station convenience store Monday night.

Authorities say the mini mart of a gas station near the intersection of 10th Street West and Palmdale Boulevard was robbed by a black man in a ski mask, gray hoodie and shorts, sheriff’s Detective Hoyt said.

The robber approached a clerk behind the register and demanded she open it and empty its contents into the backpack he was holding. The clerk obeyed the robber’s orders, and was forced outside the store and into the store’s stock room. There, the suspect ordered the clerk and another employee who was in the stock room onto the floor and demanded their wallets.

The robber then brought the store clerk back into the mini mart, pausing to rummage through the register a second time before fleeing on foot.

No one was injured during the robbery.

The suspect was described as a 20- to 30-year-old black man, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He was described as being muscular and wore a gray hoodie and gray sweat shorts with black stripes.

Anyone with information about this robbery can call Hoyt at (661) 272-2473.

    Everyday there is high crime ,
    so Imagine when a disaster hits and like an earthquake or electromagnetic storm and we are on our own, These Ghetto Thugs will come out in swarms and good luck if you don’t have a plan!
    Nice cars, homes, etc will be targeted. Did you learn from Hurricane Katrina?

      It’s a result of jungle DNA. Out of the jungle comes only savage beings that plunder the helpless, and weak. Somewhat surprising that no one was hurt or killed by it.

    Yes, the low life come up from LA and settle there. It’s not a good part of town. A lot more crime in that area. The cops have their jobs cut out for them in Palmdale and Lancaster. I hope they catch the punk and throw the book at him.

    The newpaper in Palmdale says the crime has gone down but they lie. Know this for a fact!!

    Good postings!

    Wait until all of these junior high and high school future gang bangers turn 18, and have no job.
    Already they have no respect, lack communication skills, text instead of speaking, plus it is bad grammar and they don’t respect adults.
    Their idols are rap artists and players.
    Also, their HS diploma is equivalent to an Indian’s or Chinese 4th grader.
    This is the future California!!

    Good job parents, lousy role models you are smoking, drinking , using drugs and destroying families.

    Oops, sorry. That area is not a bad area so now I’m shocked even more. Actually it’s in a better part of town. Well, they’re spreading out into the better neighborhoods.. I feel bad for everyone in Palmdale. They have to have security doors on their homes. Terrible!!!
