OAH, THESE KNUCKLE HEADS ARE GETTNG WORSE BY THE DAY
On Thursday, the Los Angels Police Department released surveillance video of a taco truck being robbed at gunpoint in South L.A. last month as they seek to identify the three perpetrators seen in the footage.
The food truck was parked in the 1300 block of West Manchester Avenue on July 14 when the three men entered and demanded money from the workers.
They forced the two employees to the ground and attempted to gain access to the safe. But when they were unable to open it, the armed men turned their attention back to the workers, demanding their personal property, including cell phones and cash, police said.
“We believe that the suspects were there for the cash in the truck,” said Detective Jerry Gibson. “However, they couldn’t gain access to the safe in the truck, so they robbed the employees, unfortunately, instead.”
One of the victims was pistol-whipped during the incident, according to LAPD.
The robbers then fled the taco truck with the victims’ property, but it was unknown what direction they headed.
Authorities did not release any detailed suspect descriptions, describing them as two black men and one Hispanic man, all in their 20s; none had any distinctive physical features, police said in the release.
