Los Angeles: Detectives from the
Los Angeles Police Department’s Rampart Area are seeking the
public’s help in identifying armed robbery suspects that were
involved in two separate robberies on the same day. Both incidents
were captured on surveillance cameras.

On December 5, 2020, around 3:00 p.m., the suspects entered a
convenience store in the 1300 block of Temple Street, approached
the counter, and showed what appeared to be a handgun. While
pointing the handgun at the employee, the suspects demanded money
from the cash register. In fear, the employee complied. The
suspects fled from the location in a brown or gray Chevy

Later that evening, around 8:28 p.m., the same suspects were
observed entering a discount store in the 2200 block of Beverly
Boulevard. The suspects brandished handguns while demanding money
from the employees. The employees of that store, also in fear,
complied and gave the suspects money from the register in addition
to other items from the store. The suspects then fled the location
in the same Chevy Malibu
