Armed Suspects in Two Robberies, Caught on Tape

Los Angeles: Two suspects believed to be responsible for at least two armed robberies have been caught on surveillance tape.

On January 23, 2008 at about 8:00 p.m, two male Blacks entered the Washington Mini-Mart, located in the 3400 block of Washington Boulevard. One suspect acted as a lookout while the other suspect approached the clerk and pointed a handgun at her, demanding money from the cash register. The clerk complied and handed over the money, at which time both suspects left the location.

The second robbery occurred on January 27, 2008, at around 5:30 a.m., at the Winchell’s Donuts located in the 3600 block of Venice Boulevard. Two male Blacks walked into the donut shop, one armed with a handgun. The armed suspect jumped over the counter and pointed the gun at the clerk, ordering him to the ground. The suspect then removed money from the cash register and both suspects ran from the location.




They are described as male Blacks between the ages of 18-27, with dark hair and dark eyes, 5’7” to 6’ tall, weighing between 140 and 200 lbs. Both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.

Detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspects. Detective Avila said, “We believe someone will recognize one or both of these suspects and we are asking that they call us with any information that may help us put a name to their faces.” Avila also wants to remind the public that they can call and provide information with complete anonymity.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Fernando Avila or Heather Wilbur at Wilshire Division, Robbery Detectives at 213-922-8205. During off-hours or on weekends, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
