On November 11, 2016, around 11:55 p.m., the suspect entered a local convenience store in the 500 block of West El Segundo Boulevard in the city of Los Angeles. The suspect grabbed a bottle of water and proceeded to the front counter. After waiting for multiple customers to leave the store, he simulated a handgun and ordered employees to take money out of the cash register and place it on the counter. He then jumped over the counter and removed around $300 dollars of US currency from the cash register. Suspect then fled the location on foot.
