PICO RIVERA — Two men with a handgun held a video store patron at gunpoint as they robbed both the store and the customer late Thursday, authorities said.
The robbery was reported just after 9 p.m. at Mega Video, 9425 Telegraph Road, unit 119, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Dianna Woodward said.
Two men entered the store and pretended to be customers until a real customer approached the register, the sergeant said.
“The two suspects came up from behind. They held the customer at gunpoint and they demanded money from both the clerk and customer,” Woodward said.
After receiving some cash, the robbers were last seen running east from the store, officials said. They were described only as black men between 20 and 25 years old.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station.
