POMONA - A man is sought in a string of daring robberies and attempted robberies, one of which was caught in daylight on security camera.
The suspect was recorded as he violently attacked an employee at ALE Insurance, 1285 S. Garey Ave., August 31. The suspect pretended to be a customer, left the business and returned with a knife he brandished from his waistband.
The suspect and employee fought each other; the latter grabbed for the knife as the suspect kept the employee at bay by holding her long hair. The employee was slammed against a bookshelf and held against the floor.
The suspect eventually stole roughly $1,000 from the employee’s desk.
The armed suspect is wanted in connection for three gas station robberies where money from the cash register was demanded while brandishing a weapon, Pomona Police said.
Anyone with information on a suspect is urged to call Pomona Police at 909-622-1241. Information can be provided anonymously by calling L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
