Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department’s Pacific Division detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a robbery of a local adult novelty store.
On April 18, 2022, around 10:50 p.m., a male suspect entered an adult novelty store in the area of Lincoln Boulevard and 84th Street. The suspect walked up to the counter, pointed a black semiautomatic handgun at the sales associate behind the cash register, and ordered the associate to give him “all the money”. Out of fear, the associate stepped away from the register. As she did, the suspect walked over to the display wall and retrieved an adult novelty product. The suspect then quickly walked out of the door. No money was taken.
The suspect is described as a male, standing at 6 feet tall and weighing about 175 pounds. He has dark hair, dark eyes, and is believed to be between 40 to 50 years old. The suspect was armed with a blue-steel semi-automatic handgun. He is pictured below:
