Fortuneteller's shop robbed

A pair of robbers held up a Little Saigon-area fortuneteller, making off with jewelry and cash and leaving the owners and a lone customer bound and gagged, police said Wednesday.

An armed man and an accomplice entered the Westminster Boulevard shop Saturday and asked the owners for a "specific object," said Westminster Police Det. David Ferronato.

He declined to say what the object was. When the robbers did not find it, they bound and gagged two female owners and a female customer in a back office of the business, Ferronato said.

They also grabbed bracelets and rings worth hundreds of dollars and cash from the women's purses.
