On January 9, 2021, at 12:55 PM, a male entered the 76 Gas Station (13960 Harbor Blvd.) in Garden Grove. He was initially in the candy aisle; but then walked behind the counter and brandished a knife as he approached the employee. The suspect took several packs of cigarettes and demanded the cash register be opened.
The employee was able to obtain a large metal pole instead. The two confronted each other, however, no physical altercation ensured. The suspect ultimately ran out of the store and was last seen northbound Harbor Blvd, in a white Toyota Corolla.
