Business Robbed at Gunpoint

The robber got away with cash from the Tuesday afternoon hold up.

A teenager armed with a black handgun held up Lomeli Communications at 303 E. Lake Ave. around 4:50 p.m. Tuesday, Watsonville police reported.

Police searched for the robber but he had not been arrested late Tuesday.

The clerk told officers the robber brandished the gun and took cash. He was described at 17 or 18 years old and Latino. He was wearing a baseball cap, hoodie sweatshirt and blue jeans, police said.

No one was hurt, police said.

Detectives ask that anyone with information about the robbery call the Investigations Division at 768-3350 or the Crime Tipline at 768-3544.

David, I would say where WERE the parents when they were growing up? I read that our young people down to 12 and 13 are doing things of this nature. I am not blaming entirely but I do have photos of the BB training kids in uniform as young as 6. This sure doesn't help.

Really? As a Dad....it makes me very upset, that some business owner suffers at the hands of a lost young man.

LOST?? Perhaps misguided.

Pansies point guns in people's faces and demand money. Real men suck it up and get jobs.

Well put, Watzon! And gangsters are pansies, because they travel in packs like animals because they are too woosie to act on their own. Then when the police show up, they run like a bunch of pansie chihuahuas instead of owning up to their actions.
