FLORENCE (CBSLA) – A robbery suspect that Gardena Police and Los Angeles Police Departments were trying to take into custody refused, for a time, to surrender Sunday afternoon.

The suspect holed up on a building rooftop off of South San Pedro Street between Manchester Avenue and East 87th Street for an hour.

The man was eventually taken into custody by a team of LAPD officers. Another suspect in the robbery was arrested earlier.
