DIAMOND BAR — A man armed with a handgun robbed a Big Lots Wednesday night of an undisclosed amount.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Saldecke said no shots were fired and no one was injured during the 9 p.m. robbery at the store, 1139 S. Diamond Bar Blvd.
He said the robber was waiting outside the manager’s office. When she stepped out, Saldecke said the suspect pulled out a gun and forced her back into the office.
The suspect also threatened to hurt her if she didn’t take the money from the safe, according to the sergeant.
The man then ran out with the cash. He was described as a Latino, about 45 to 50, with a mustache, between 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall and weighing between 160 to 180 pounds. He wore blue jeans and a denim jacket.

DIAMOND BAR — Arraignment was postponed Tuesday for a Diamond Bar teacher who authorities allege was having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student.
Steven Shane Andrews, 41, was scheduled to be arraigned in Pomona Superior Court, but the proceedings were postponed, court officials said.
Andrews, a teacher at Lorbeer Middle School, faces 18 felony counts stemming from an alleged relationship with the girl from May through September, according to a criminal complaint filed in Superior Court by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Andrews is scheduled to return to court Nov. 1 for arraignment on the charges, officials said.
The defendant is being held at Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles in lieu of $450,000 bail.
The girl told investigators that she had a sexual relationship with Andrews while she was in the eighth grade at Lorbeer, in the 2010-2011 school year, sheriff’s officials said.
The school is in the Pomona Unified School District.
The defendant surrendered to deputies on Sept. 30 at a sheriff’s station in Walnut.
Andrews faces six counts each of sexual penetration with a foreign object and unlawful sexual intercourse with a child, three counts of lewd acts with a child, two counts of oral copulation with a child under 16 and one count of first-degree residential burglary, according to the criminal complaint.
