Bandaged Hand Bandit

Los Angeles: A man pretending to have a hand injury was caught on camera robbing a discount clothing store.

On Saturday, February 2, 2008, at about 4:45 PM, a suspect entered the Bambi’s Fashion store in the 4800 block of West Washington Boulevard posing as a customer. The suspect’s hand was bandaged and appeared to be injured. Using his bandaged hand as a ruse, the suspect asked the clerk for assistance in holding selected items.

As the clerk assisted the suspect with his items, the suspect suddenly produced a handgun and demanded money from the cash register. After taking money and clothing, the suspect left the location.

The suspect was described as a Black man, black hair, brown eyes, and 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighing about 160 pound. He is about 25-35 years old. During the robbery the suspect was wearing a white baseball cap, dark jacket, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Wilshire Robbery Detectives Webster Wong or Ron Kim at 213-922-8205. During off-hours or on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
