Culver City police are searching for a man suspected of committing potentially several robberies in Southern California.
The suspect hit a Mini Mart on 4273 Overland Ave. on Thursday evening.
The Mini Mart cashier told police the suspect approached him at the cash register while pointing a handgun, around 7:55 p.m. The suspect then opened the register and emptied it into his pocket before running off towards Braddock Drive, the cashier said.
He stole about $500, police said in a press release.
According to police, the suspect is described as a man between the ages of 20-25 years old. He was wearing a Washington Nationals hat with “Diablos” embroidered onto the side, long gray sleeve shirt, dark pants, black and white Nike shoes, gloves and a black face mask, the press release said.
