THOUSAND OAKS : $1,000 Offered for Information About Armed Robber

Police are looking for an armed robber who held up two Thousand Oaks pizza parlors and a Newbury Park liquor store at gunpoint in the last month and Ventura County Crime Stoppers is offering $1,000 for information that would lead to his arrest.

The first robbery occurred Feb. 13, when a man wearing a blue ski mask confronted the manager and clerk of Domino's Pizza at 2220 N. Moorpark Road at closing time.

The robber forced the pair inside before taking their wallets and the change from a drawer.

On Feb. 24, a robber wearing a ski mask and clear rubber gloves surprised the manager of Little Caesar's Pizza at 1062 Avenida de las Arboles.

The robber pointed a .357 caliber, stainless steel revolver at the manager and demanded that he open the safe.

Four nights later, a robber wearing a gray nylon stocking over his head pointed a dark metal revolver at the manager of Park Plaza Wine and Spirits liquor store at 2199 Michael Drive.

The store manager complied with the robber's demand for money.

All the witnesses described the robber as appearing of Asian descent, with an accent that could be Vietnamese or Chinese.

They also said he appeared to be about 20 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall with long black hair.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 494-TALK.
