Investigators are looking for a man who they say got a massage at a Newhall massage parlor last month, then brandished a handgun and robbed the business afterward.
The crime took place about 1:40 p.m. on June 27 at a massage parlor in the 24000 block of Railroad Avenue, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a bulletin.
“After receiving his massage the suspect was attempting to make payment, but then lifted his shirt, revealing the butt of a handgun, and robbed the victims,” according to the bulletin.
Detectives described the robber as a Latino man in his 20s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and of thin build. No getaway car was mentioned.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Detective Burrow of the Sheriff’s Santa Clarita Valley Station at 661-255-1121. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
