The Commerce Police Department is looking for a black male suspect in the 2 a.m. armed robbery of a woman New Year’s Day.
According to the incident report, the victim, a 30-year-old white female, said she was in the vicinity of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and East Cordes Place — an area known for drug sales — “looking for her brother” when a black male jumped in front of her vehicle “brandishing a firearm.”
The woman told police that he came to the driver side of the vehicle, held the gun to her head and demanded all her money. She gave him $60.
The victim was able to give the police a name of the suspect, apparently from two witnesses to the incident.
