Armed robbery nets $9 for bandit

PASADENA — A man with a knife robbed two pedestrians of $9 Tuesday night.
An Altadena man and a Pasadena man were walking on Sierra Bonita Avenue and Colorado Boulevard at 7:52 p.m. when they were approached by a man who demanded cellphones and money, according to Pasadena police Lt. Pete Hettema.
Hettema said the robber had his hand behind his back.
The victims ignored the robber at first then he showed a knife, Hettema said. They handed him the $9.
The suspect was described as a Latino in his late 20s, between 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet tall and of medium build.
