Armed Robbery with a Handgun

Armed Robbery with a Handgun


On July 13th, 2016 at about 8:39 PM, the Chinese Taste Restaurant at 932 E Alosta Avenue was robbed by an armed male. The suspect pointed a handgun at employees while demanding money from the cash register. Out of fear for their lives, the employees complied with his demands. The suspect fled with about $500 dollars. None of the employees were injured during the incident.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, about 6'0"/230 lbs, with a scruffy beard, wearing a khaki hat, blue jacket, khaki shorts, and black shoes.

The robbery was captured on video and the Azusa Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Azusa PD Detective Seth Chapman at 626-812-3252, or the Azusa Police Department general line at 626-812-3200.
