(FOX 11) La Palma Police are asking for the public's help in identifying an armed robbery suspect who held up the La Palma Express 76 gas station on La Palma Avenue and Walker street around 9:30 p.m. Monday night in the city of La Palma.

According to the clerk around $500 was taken, but the station's surveillance cameras has recorded the crime and got a good look of the suspect.

The suspect is described as an African American wearing dark colored pants and jacket with black and white shoes and a baseball cap with a red bill and logo on front.

Anyone with information is asked to call the La Palma Police Department at (714) 690-3370.

 

From Gigi Graciette:

Sixteen different cameras were rolling at the La Palma Express 76 gas station on La Palma Avenue and Walker last night as the man in the black walked in.

From every possible angle, they caught him waving a gun as a terrified clerk, a college student, did what he was told - hand over the cash. In the back, an unsuspecting pastry vendor stocked fresh donuts and bearclaws for the morning rush.

Unsuspecting until the man in the black pointed his gun at him, right before he walked out into the darkness of night. Even though his face was covered with a black bandanna police really hope someone will recognize him and do the right thing.

The suspect is described as an African American male wearing dark colored pants and jacket with black and white shoes and a baseball cap with a red bill and logo on front. Anyone with information is asked to call the La Palma Police Department at (714) 690-3370.
