Police are asking the public to help identify a man seen on camera robbing Sunset Grocery in Browne’s Addition last week.

The department has released photos showing a man outside the store with his face revealed and then inside the store with a bandana covering the lower half of his face.

He is described as light-skinned black or Hispanic man, wearing a distinctive black and white coat with the letters “L A” on the back.

At about 1:20 p.m. on Friday, the man entered the store at 1908 W. Sunset Blvd. and threatened an employee with a knife, demanding money.

He escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said, and ran west down the alley on the north side of the business.
