In less than a minute, the man pictured above in a surveillance video entered a Lincoln Heights market in the 3300 block of Griffin Avenue and flashed a shiny handgun at the clerk, who scooped cash out of the register as well as out of his own wallet and handed it to the robber. The March 23 robbery took place in about 50 seconds. The LAPD Hollenbeck Division is now seeking the public’s help in identifying the robbery before he strikes again.
Anyone with information about the man – described as a Latino male, 6-feet, 3-inches high and 250 pounds – should call Hollenbeck robbery detectives Stanley Young or Araceli Negrete at 323-342-8986. Click here for more details about the suspect and crime.
