Police are searching for two suspects in a robbery that occurred Monday afternoon in the 2800 block of East Colorado Boulevard.
The victim, a 26-year-old man from San Gabriel, told police he had arranged to meet the suspects to sell them merchandise. When he arrived, one of the suspects pulled out a black handgun and struck him in the head four or five times. The other suspect stood watch at the door.
The victim believes he may have briefly lost consciousness, but he remembers seeing the suspects flee with the merchandise, which included clothing, shoes, and US currency. He suffered a laceration to his head and was transported to a local hospital, where he was treated and released.
The suspects are described as black males in their thirties. The first suspect is six feet one inch tall and weighs 180 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. The second suspect is five feet ten inches tall and is heavy set. He also has black hair and brown eyes.
