Man Robs Whittier Baskin-Robbins With Semi-Automatic Handgun

Police on Friday released surveillance images of a man accused of robbing a Baskin-Robbins ice cream store in Whittier last month using a semi-automatic handgun.

The robbery occurred in the 15200 block of Whittier Boulevard around 1:30 p.m. on May 27, according to the Whittier Police Department.

Police said a man in his 20s entered the store, walked behind the front counter, and pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun. He then ordered an employee to hand over money from the cash register, police said.

Surveillance images captured the man, described as 5-foot-9 and weighing about 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a v-neck shirt, grey pants, white shoes and a grey Oakley hat. He has an unknown tattoo on his left inner bicep.

Police were also searching for the man's car, described as a black newer model two-door Honda Accord with tinted windows.

Authorities did not disclose how much money was taken.
