Glendora Police are working on trying to apprehend three robbery suspects after they attacked and threatened the victim with a weapon in the Walmart parking lot Sunday night.

The incident happened after 9 p.m. in the lot nearest to the main entrance, according to Glendora PD scanner reports.

Items allegedly taken were a 15-inch Macbook laptop and GPS device.

It is not known at this time how the suspects approached the alleged victim, but one of the male suspects allegedly hit the victim with a wine bottle, while the female suspect threatened the victim with a knife, according to information given to Glendora PD on scene.

The victim was disoriented after the incident.

The suspect truck is described as a white Chevy Silverado.

A witness followed the truck, reportedly entering the soutbound Interstate 57 freeway. The witness wrote down the truck's license plate number before exiting himself at Covina Blvd., according to scanner reports.

Suspects are described as a male white in his 30s or 40s, medium build, shaved head, tattoos on his face and neck; second suspect is a heavy-set female Hispanic. There was no description of the third male suspect.

This story will continue to be updated as information becomes available.

See Lulu's comment. It's why out of district students have been accepted.

If the community is okay with it, I am okay with it.

Once again, the 'only point' she made, is that Glendora needs to keep allowing non- residents' children to continue to go to Glendora schools & the Glendora taxpayers keep paying for the 'non-residents' children. No !

That's not how CA public schools work. Schools get funding from the government based on the number of students and attendance. The parents pay for their children's schooling through taxes. If a kid is coming from West Covina, the kid's parents have already paid their child. The parents' tax money will go to Glendora USD--not West Covina USD. If your child transferred to Charter Oak USD, your tax money for your child's education wouldn't stay with Glendora USD--it would go to Charter Oak USD. No one in Charter Oak would be paying for your child's public education.
