CULVER CITY (CNS) - Culver City police today arrested the last of three suspects who allegedly robbed a Shell gas station at gunpoint.

The boy, whose age was not disclosed, was arrested Thursday morning in Whittier and booked for robbery, according to the Culver City Police Department. The other two suspects were ``arrested recently'' by other law enforcement agencies, but no further details were released.

Culver City Police Department officers were called just after 11:45 a.m. on March 18 to the gas station at 3801 Sepulveda Blvd., near Venice Boulevard, and made contact with two employees who said three suspects entered the gas station and ``began to engage the victims in conversation'' before all three produced handguns and demanded money, according to the CCPD.

The employees handed over $438 from the cash register, and the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle. No injuries were reported.

The three suspects -- whose names were not released -- have ``extensive criminal arrest'' histories and are suspected by the CCPD to have been involved in similar robberies throughout Los Angeles County.

Anyone with information on the March 18 robbery or any similar crimes possibly committed by the suspects was asked to contact CCPD Sgt. Eddie Baskaron at 310-253-6316.
