CULVER CITY (CNS) - Culver City police are searching for three men who pulled up to a man sitting on a bus bench and robbed him of his jacket and belt at gunpoint.
The robbery took place Sunday around 6:20 p.m. on Green Valley Circle, just east of Sepulveda Boulevard, according to Culver City police, who saidthe suspects made their getaway in a gray or beige older-model sedan with an inoperable front right headlight.
The victim, whose name was withheld, told police he was sitting on the bench when a car pulled up with three men inside. The rear passenger pointed a black handgun at the man and demanded his jacket and belt, and he complied out of fear for his life, police said.
The suspects were described as ranging in age from 17 or 18 to about 25. The youngest was wearing a blue jacket, and one of his companions was between 22 and 24 years old, with a thin build, ear piercings and black twist-style hair.
Anyone with information on the armed robbery was asked to call Culver City police Lt. Estrada at 310-253-6316.
