Man refuses to hand over wallet to robber waving gun

The search continues for a robber who held 2 men at gunpoint around midnight in the parking lot of the Greyhound bus stop, 888 S. Indian Hill Blvd.

The robber approached the men sitting in a parked car and demanded that they empty their pockets and hand over their wallets or he would shoot. One man handed over his wallet, but the other refused, attempting to get out of the car and confront the robber, according to Lieutenant Shelly Vander Veen. Before he could get out of the car, the robber took off and was last seen heading east on Amherst Avenue and south on Bonnie Brae.

He is described as a male Hispanic about 20 years old, with black hair and weighing about 130 pounds. Any information regarding this armed robbery should be reported to the Claremont Police at (909) 399-5411.

Police would like to remind Claremont residents not to confront a robber, especially one with a weapon: “No property is worth your life,” Lt. Vander Veen said.
