If You Know the Man Pictured -- and You Want $1,000 -- You're in Luck

The search is on for two men who police say robbed a guy earlier this year, and now authorities want your help. They're even making it worth your while.

Silent Witness is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspects, one of whom is pictured to the right.

According to authorities, on March 28, the victim got off the Light Rail at the 19th Avenue and Montebello Station and started walking to his car, which was parked in a nearby park-and-ride.

The victim was approached by the two suspects -- who claimed to have a gun -- and told to hand over all his cash.

After handing over the money he had on him, the victim was forced to go to an ATM machine and withdraw more cash, which was taken by the two suspects.

The two men then fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The first suspect (pictured above) is described as a black male, 17-20 years old, about 5-foot-10 to six feet tall, and 135 pounds.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 17-20 years old, about 5-foot-8, and 135 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-928-6377.
