The LAPD wants your help to find a robbery suspect

On Monday morning, a restaurant in the 6200 block of Broadway was robbed by an African-American male, estimated to be 25 to 27 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and about 170 pounds.

Detectives are asking anyone who might recognize the man caught on tape as he robbed the restaurant to come forward with any information they might have.

In the released footage, the suspect can be seen walking calmly through the door and behind the counter to demand money from the cashier. Once the register is open, the cashier and another employee walk away as the suspect empties cash into his sweater pockets and strolls away.

Police say that the man brandished a gun at the cashier, and are calling for anyone who might recognize him to come forward. He was wearing a black beanie, black pants and a black hooded sweatshirt at the time of the incident.
