Suspects Sought in Store Robbery NR11480bb

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 the suspects responsible for a robbery in the West L.A. Area.

On October 6, at around 5 a.m., two African-American males entered the 7-11 store located in the 11600 block of Wilshire Boulevard. Two employees, one of whom is the store manager, were working inside when the men walked in. One of the suspects made his way over to the employees and demanded one of them to the floor. The suspect then dragged the manager from the front of the store to the area behind the cash registers.

Once the suspect and the store manager were behind the cash registers, the suspect ordered the manager to open the safe. When the manager said that he could not unlock the safe, the suspect demanded that he open the cash registers. Fearing for his life, the manager did as he was told. The suspect removed about two hundred dollars from one of the registers and then both suspects left the store.

The store was equipped with a CCTV system that captured the robbery on video.  The suspects are described as African-American males that appeared to be 20 years-old.  They stood about 6 feet tall and weighed about 150 pounds.  Both suspects were last seen wearing white plastic painter’s suits, gloves and their faces were covered by painter’s masks.

The suspects are to be considered ARMED and DANGEROUS.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call West L.A. Robbery Detectives at 310-444-1520. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.   Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (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.
