ROSEMEAD — An armed robber fled empty-handed after a man refused to give up his property early Friday, authorities said.
The crime was reported about 4:30 a.m. in the 1000 block of South San Gabriel Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Tim Murakami said.
A man in his early 20s was approached by the robber, initially described only as a Latino man brandishing a handgun, who demanded his cell phone and wallet.
“The victim refused, and the suspect ran,” the lieutenant said.
No further details were available.
