(Video) Three Gunman, One In A Halloween Mask, Rob Downtown Los Angeles Wholesale Business, Scare The Hell Out Of People
Scariest. Robbery. Ever. (Video after the jump).
Three dudes roll up to a clothing wholesale/retail business in an industrial part of southeast downtown, pull out guns, and get $6,000 in cash. One of them is wearing a Jason-like Halloween ski mask (not to mention that he's also carrying what appears to be a large semiautomatic handgun).
It all went down in broad daylight Oct. 29 at California Liquidators, 664 South Santa Fe Avenue, police said.
The trio of robbers entered the business' cargo entrance about 4:10 p.m. One guy wore the mask, the other two covered their faces with hoodies, cops said.

" ... Videotape clearly shows how the suspects shoved their guns into the faces of frightened customers and employees," LAPD Lt. Paul Vernon said. "One customer, a woman, was actually kicked in the shoulder while she lay on the floor, even though she was obeying their commands."
The three got away in a white or silver Toyota Camry, police said.
Anyone who might have information about the robbery was asked to call the LAPD at 213-972-1245.
