According to police, the men entered the Citgo, 5049 W. 79th Street, around 7:30 p.m. on December 3. The female clerk told police one of the men stood near the door while the other two walked up and down the aisles.
When the clerk asked if she could help, one of the men pulled out a chrome semi-automatic handgun and entered the cashier's station. The man threatened the clerk and demanded money. While the clerk was complying with the gunman’s demand, his accomplices began removing cigarettes, according to police.
The clerk was not injured and the men made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes, police said.
The three men exited the store and were last seen driving on southbound on LeClaire Avenue in an unknown vehicle. The suspects were all described as black males, between 140-160 pounds, wearing dark colored hooded jackets and blue jeans.
According to Division Chief Mike Dudlo of the Burbank Police Department, investigators are reviewing store surveillance video and footage from other cameras in the area in an attempt to identify the men.
Anyone who may have information on this robbery is asked to contact the Burbank Police Department at 708-924-7300.
