Montebello Police Ask For Help in Finding Suspect

 Montebello police asked for the public’s help Wednesday in finding a young man suspected of robbing a doughnut store twice in July, a police detective said.

The first robbery at Sunshine Donuts at 201 E. Beverly Blvd., took place about 1:55 a.m. on July 8, Montebello police Detective Al Martinez said. The second robbery came eight days later on July 16, about 1:45 a.m., he said.

In each case, the robber pointed a simulated weapon at the clerk whom was ordered to hand over all the cash in the register, Martinez said. The suspect stuffed the money into a blue laptop bag and fled.

The Hispanic suspect is 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, Martinez said. In both holdups, he wore a baseball cap, a dark tank top and yellow sunglasses.

Anyone with more information about the crime or the whereabouts of the suspect was asked to call (323) 887-1248. All tips can be made anonymously.
