Robbery Suspect Caught By North East LAPD Units

A mask wearing robbery suspect was spotted running from a bottle/can recycling business that he just robbed by LAPD unit that just happened to be driving by. The suspect pistol whipped and robbed an employee of the recycling business on 6152 Myosotis Ave in Highland Park, and ran off right past the LAPD unit. The suspect hid under a camper truck on Ruby Place, not far from the crime scene. A LAPD air unit circled over the general area of where the robber was spotted, calling out on their bullhorn for him to give up. More North East units showed up with a police dog and shotguns. The dog quickly found the suspect, and the officers retrieved the belligerent and spitting suspect from under the camper. The suspect was transported by ambulance from the scene.
