San Pedro: The Los Angeles
Police Department’s Harbor Area detectives are asking for the
public’s assistance in identifying two robbery suspects. The
suspects were caught on surveillance video armed with a shot gun
robbing a convenience store.
On Sunday, March 27, 2016, around 2 a.m., two suspects entered a
convenience store located in the 1500 block of North Gaffey Street
in the city of San Pedro. The suspects approached the store clerk
and ordered him to open the cash registers while one the suspects
stood by with a shotgun resting on the counter. The second suspect
jumped over the counter and took money from both registers as well
as merchandise. Both of the suspects then exited the store and fled
north on foot.
The store’s exterior video cameras captured both suspects running
toward the store and exiting the store. Video footage also shows
one of the suspects pointing the shotgun at an oncoming vehicle,
and then running out of camera view.
The first suspect is described as a male Black, approximately
25-years-old. He is approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs
approximately 200 pounds. He was captured on video wearing a grey
beanie, black hooded sweatshirt, white t-shirt, white gloves, white
& black basketball shorts and black sneakers.
The second suspect is described as a male Black, approximately
22-years-old. He is approximately 6 feet tall and weighs
approximately 180 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweater,
dark gloves, black pants and black & white sneakers.
