SAN DIMAS — An armed man held up a San Dimas check cashing business Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
The crime took place about 4:15 p.m. when the robber entered Check Into Cash, 865 W. Arrow Highway, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Vicki Gregory said.
The man brandished a handgun as he demanded money, ultimately fleeing with more than $2,000, officials said.
As he left, he ordered the employees and customers to go to the rear of the business, Gregory said. He was last seen running south from the store.
Two employees and a family including two children who were inside the store at the time were unharmed, Gregory said.
Officials described the robber as a white man between 40 and 50 years old, wearing a baseball cap, a hooded sweat shirt and jeans.
