Reseda Radio Shack and Customers Robbed by Lone Gunman NR10372rh

Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) West Valley Robbery Detectives are asking for the public’s help for information leading to the identification and arrest of a lone gunman.

On July 17, 2010, at around 12 p.m., a lone gunman entered a Radio Shack in the 17600 block of Vanowen Street in the area of Reseda.  Inside the store at the time were six customers and a store employee.  The suspect armed himself with a handgun as he quickly converged on the store employee and customers who were all gathered around the checkout counter.  The suspect placed the gun against the neck of a female customer and ordered the employee to empty the register.  After obtaining the contents of the register and placing them in a plastic bag he ordered all of the customers to place their money and valuables into the same bag.

The suspect left the location with an undetermined amount of stolen cash and property.  The victims were not injured during the robbery and the victims were not able to provide the police with any vehicle description.

The suspect is described as a Black Male, 20-30 years of age, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing approximately 220 pounds.  He was wearing dark clothing and a distinctive baseball cap with the letter “B” on the front.

Attached to the news release are photographs of the suspect that can also be obtained through the LAPD Media Relations Section at 213-486-5910.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery is encouraged to contact West Valley Area robbery detectives at 818-374-7730.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers 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.
