7-Eleven Robbery Suspect Captured on Video; Suspect Being Sought NR11411gb

Los Angeles:  LAPD West Los Angeles Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that will lead to the arrest of a suspect who robbed a convenience store in West Los Angeles area.

On September 1, 2011, around 2:15 a.m., an African-American male entered the “7 Eleven” located in the 11650 block of Wilshire Boulevard.  Once he is inside the store, he pointed a handgun at two customers standing to the rear of the store.  The suspect ordered the customers to the ground.  The suspect proceeded to point the handgun at an employee behind the counter and demanded money from a cash register.  The suspect gave the employee a blue bag (possible pillowcase) to put the money in.  Once the suspect’s demands were met, he ran from the store in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of money in the blue bag.

The “7 Eleven” was equipped with a CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) system that captured the robbery on video.  The suspect is described as an African-American male that appeared to be 20-25 years of age.  He stands about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds.  The suspect was last seen wearing a black and gray hooded sweatshirt, black jeans, black gloves and black ski mask.

The suspect is to be considered ARMED and DANGEROUS!

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call West Los Angeles Area Robbery Detectives at 310-444-1520. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (1-800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
