Man Killed by Police Called Violent Robber

September 13, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

Authorities on Thursday described a Stanton man, who was fatally shot by police after a high-speed chase Wednesday, as a violent robber who hit at least nine Little Saigon sites in the last year.

Police said the 37-year-old, whose name has not been released, targeted senior citizens and small businesses that didn't have surveillance cameras.

"He would often pistol-whip his victims, even if they cooperated with him," said Westminster Police Lt. Mitch Waller.
