The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a Macy’s in Northridge on Friday, slashing a store employee in the process.
At about 9 p.m., the man was caught stealing women’s perfume from Macy’s at 9200 Shirley Ave. by a loss-prevention employee. The man then pulled out a knife and cut the employee in the face, “barely missing his eyes,” according to a release from the LAPD.
The robber, a man who appears to be about 6 feet tall and to weigh about 190 pounds, is most likely between 22 and 25 years old, police said.
Police added that the man was wearing a black hoodie with a Boss logo on the front.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Barone at 818-832-0874.
