Man suspected in La Puente armed robbery

LA PUENTE — Officials jailed a man Wednesday on suspicion of taking part in an armed robbery, authorities said.
Allen Parra, 24, of La Puente was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Hiroshi Yokoyama said.
Three other men believed to be involved in the robbery remained at large, he said.
A deputy was flagged down about 10:15 p.m. near Nelson and Orange avenues by a 26-year-old La Puente man who told them that four young men had just used a knife to rob him of his cell phone and wallet, the lieutenant said.
The deputy spotted several men running in the area and was able to capture one of them, Yokoyama said, who was later identified as Parra.
The suspects who were not caught were described as Latino men in their early- to mid-20s, Yokoyama said. They were between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet 2 inches tall and between 110 and 180 pound, and all wore black clothes.
According to sheriff’s booking records, Parra is due in El Monte Superior Court for arraignment Friday.
