Culver City police are looking for two men who allegedly held up at gunpoint a local gas station last weekend.
The armed takeover robbery was reported about 9:35 p.m. on June 11 at a Shell gas station located at 10332 Culver Blvd, according to Culver City Police Department.
Responding police officers found three victims and learned two men entered the store and one pointed a silver and black semi-automatic handgun at one of the victims, said CCPD.
The men then forced two employees face down on the floor and removed cash from the register, said police which released a video of the crime: https://www.facebook.com/CulverCityPoliceDepartment/videos/1067872697415350/
One of the men entered the back office and “pointed the gun at the manager’s head and demanded more money. In fear for her life, she complied,” police said.
Both men eventually left the store and ran east on Culver Boulevard. Police said they stole $4000 in cash and coins. They remain outstanding.
The armed suspect is described by police as a Hispanic man, between 20 and 30 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. He was wearing a gray hoodie, a black face mask, black shorts, black shoes and has tattoos on his hand.
