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.
