COVINA — Two robbers stole a man’s cell phone and iPod at knifepoint Wednesday afternoon in an unincorporated county area near Covina, authorities said.
The robbery was reported just before 1 p.m. at a Via Verde off-ramp of the 10 Freeway, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Ramirez said.
The victim was approached by two men described as Latino men between 20 and 25 years old, the sergeant said.
One of them was about 5 feet 8 inches tall, about 140 pounds, wore a black shirt and jeans and carried a switchblade-style knife, Ramirez said. The other robber was about 6 feet 1 inch tall, about 150 pounds, wearing a blue t-shirt.
A gray vehicle may have been used as a getaway car, he added.
