March 31, 2022
Culver City police are looking for a man who robbed at gunpoint a minimart on Overland Avenue last week and is suspected of committing similar crimes in Southern California.
The armed robbery occurred on March 24 about 8 p.m. at the Mini Mart located at 4273 Overland Ave., the Culver City Police Department reported.
The clerk told officers that the gunman "walked in and approached the cash register while pointing a handgun at him," police said.
"The suspect opened the cash register and removed all the money and placed it in his pocket," CCPD said in a statement. "The suspect ran out towards Braddock Drive and out of sight." About $500 was taken, police said.
The suspect, who wore gloves and a face mask, was described by police as Hispanic and about 20-25 years of age. He wore a Washington Nationals hat with "Diablos" embroidered on the side, a gray long-sleeve shirt, dark pants and black-and-white Nike shoes.
Investigators believe the suspect is responsible for other similar robberies in the Southland. Anyone with any information on the case is urged to call Sergeant Eddie Baskaron at 310-253-6316.
