Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's Robbery Homicide Division, Robbery Special Section, are seeking the public's help in providing any information that would lead to the identification and arrest of a serial robbery suspect.
Beginning January 9, 2019, a single male Black suspect has targeted businesses for the purpose of robbery. The suspect, described as a male Black, 6'0, 150 lbs., 30-40 years old, would enter the business armed with a handgun.
The suspect would point the handgun at the employees, jump the counter and demand the money from the register. The suspect would then force the employee to take him to the safe, open it, take the money, and flee on foot. The suspect has targeted fast food restaurants and gas stations in the South and West Los Angeles areas.
Detectives have identified eleven robberies committed by this suspect. Ten have occurred in the City of Los Angeles and one in the City of Inglewood. The most recent occurred on Monday, July 15th in the Fairfax District.
The City of Los Angeles, on a motion from Councilman H. Wesson, Council District 10, has established a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of this serial robber.
