After Hours Mall Burglary Interrupted
One of the owners of "Urban Street" came to the store to open up on Thursday morning and was surprised to find someone already inside the store. "Urban Street" is a clothing store at the Westfield Shoppingtown at Santa Anita. The owner confronted the suspect and tried to detain him but was unsuccessful when the suspect struck him several times. The suspect was able to get out of the shop and flee. The suspect was described as a male white, 20-30 years old, heavy set, about 5-09, and "bald." It appears that the suspect may have entered the ceiling from an adjacent vacant business and entered the store prior to opening.
