Sandwich Shop Robbery Footage Released

By City News Service

Police today released surveillance video of two armed suspects who robbed a sandwich shop in Boyle Heights and asked the public’s help identifying the men.

It happened about 1:35 a.m. July 2 at a restaurant in the 1800 block of Cesar Chavez Avenue, said Officer Sara Faden of the Los Angeles Police Department.

“The first suspect jumped onto the counter as the second suspect pointed a handgun at the employees and a lone customer,” Faden said in a statement. “The first suspect jumped down and demanded money from the cash register while the second suspect continued to act as a look out.”

Faden said the two fled the scene after receiving an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register.

The first suspect is black, about 30 to 40 years old, with acne scars on his cheeks. He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds.

The second suspect is black, about 28 to 30 years old, with a goatee and black-framed glasses. He is about 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs about 210 pounds.

Detectives warned the two should be considered armed and dangerous.

Authorities urged anyone with information regarding this robbery or the suspects to contact Hollenbeck area robbery detectives at (323) 342-8988 or (323) 342-4101.
