Armed Man Robs Couple in North Manhattan Beach
The incident happened Wednesday night.
A passenger in the rear seat of a car robbed two people using a handgun Wednesday night in the 200 block of 41st Street, according to the Manhattan Beach Police Department.
The male and female victims, who gave the gunman the belongings he demanded, were walking into a garage around 11:55 p.m. when a white 1990’s sedan, resembling a 4-door Toyota Corolla, stopped in front of them facing westbound.
The suspect, described as an adult black male wearing a black shirt and ski mask, rolled down a window, leaned out of the car and pointed the handgun at the victims.
After the suspect robbed the couple, he fled in the car, heading westbound on 41st Street, then northbound on Ocean Drive, and out of sight.
