Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a shopper at gunpoint at the Brea Mall in December.
On Dec. 15, the victim was exiting the shopping mall and returning to her vehicle when a group of male suspects approached her in the parking lot, according to the Brea Police Department.
All suspects were believed to be juveniles, according to the victim.
One suspect brandished a firearm while another pulled out a knife, authorities said.
The robbers took the woman’s purse and shopping bags before hopping into a getaway car and driving off. A fourth suspect was inside the vehicle awaiting the thieves, officers said.
The suspects’ vehicle is described as a newer-model dark gray sedan with tinted windows.
Police have released a sketch of one alleged suspect.
