by Contributing Editor

Police are seeking the public’s help Tuesday to find two armed suspects who robbed and assaulted a street vendor in Long Beach.

The robbery occurred Monday about 4:20 p.m. in the 1400 block of Locust Avenue, near East 14th Street, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

The suspects punched and struck the street vendor with a firearm, police said. He suffered blunt force trauma to his upper torso and was treated at the scene.

Witnesses attempted to intervene, but one suspect brandished a firearm at them.

The suspects stole cash and a cellphone from the victim then fled in a tan Mercedes-Benz coupe, police said.

Both suspects are described as 20-to-25 years old, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with medium builds, police reported.

One was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and khaki pants, and the other, who had a handgun with an extended magazine, was wearing a gray sweater and blue pants.

Anyone with information about the suspects was encouraged to contact Long Beach Police Department Robbery Detective Eric Hubbard at 562-570-7464. Those wishing to report anonymously can call 800-222-TIPS.
