An armed man robbed a district clothing store of clothing, shoes and money today. The 25-30-year old suspect entered the store in the 7800 block of
Melrose Avenue, near Fairfax Avenue, shortly before 12:30 p.m. A male employee believed he was a customer and approached to assist him, police said.

The suspect threw “a couple” of white trash bags at the employee, pointed a black handgun at him and demanded he fill the bags with clothing,
shoes and money, police said. The employee complied and the suspect took the property and fled the store on foot.

The suspect is described by police as approximately 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing around 200 pounds. He was wearing a black beanie, a blue surgical mask, a navy blue Los Angeles Rams hoodie, blue pants and shoes of an unknown color.
