Surveillance video showed the knife-wielding robber as he grabbed money from a cash register drawer at a 7-Eleven in the 12200 block of Mountain Avenue early Friday morning.

The man was believed to be involved in robberies at 7-Eleven stores in Montclair and Ontario, as well as a Shell gas station in Ontario between the hours of 3:50 and 4:42 a.m. that same morning, according to Chino police spokeswoman Michelle Van Der Linden.

The man was described as a white or Hispanic man in his early 20s, with a thin build and very short brown hair.

He was seen in the video wearing a black sweatshirt with the word “Obey” on the front.

The man also had fresh cuts under his left eye and on his left hand, according to witnesses.
