Armed man robs $6,000 in jewelry from Macy's in Pasadena

PASADENA, Calif. (KABC) -- Pasadena police are looking for an armed robber who stole about $6,000 in jewelry from a Macy's store.

The robbery happened at the Macy's at 401 S. Lake Ave., on Sept. 30 around 7 p.m.

Police say a man approached a salesperson at the jewelry counter and picked out a few items to look at as if he was a customer. When the clerk was scanning in the items for purchase, the man pulled out a silver-colored handgun and demanded the items, putting them in his own black bag.

He walked out of the store and it's not clear if a getaway vehicle was involved. Police say the jewelry was worth about $6,000.

The suspect is described as an African-American man, possibly in his 20s, standing about 5 feet 10 inches, weighing about 155 pounds, with black hair in a bun, wearing a white-and-pink striped shirt and red bandana on his head.

Pasadena police asked anyone with information to call Pasadena police at (626)744-4241 or provide an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at (800)222-TIPS.
