Paul Martinez, 50, of Victorville was booked on suspicion of armed robbery and was being held without bail at Whittier Jail. He will be arraigned Wednesday at Whittier Court. The robberies happened in Whittier and Santa Fe Springs. The first victim was sitting in a car in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven at 8438 Santa Fe Springs Road about 9 p.m., Monday when a man brandished a handgun and demanded money, according to Whittier Police spokeswoman Officer Diana Salazar. She said the robber got away with two cell phones. The victim gave police a description of the robber and the getaway vehicle, a maroon Ford Ranger. The robber next struck in the parking lot of the Food 4 Less at 7810 Norwalk Blvd. in Santa Fe Springs. He robbed a second victim of a pack of cigarettes but took nothing from a third victim, Salazar said. She said there could be a fourth victim. A witness saw the robbery in the Food 4 Less parking lot and called police. Officers suspected it was the same man because of the similar description from the previous robbery, she said. Salazar said Martinez was arrested as he was getting into a pickup. Officers found a replica of a 25-caliber handgun in his pocket and two cell phones, she added.165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

The market is likely to look up from now on. However, sustained rally in the market will happen only when we have visibility on good earnings growth and reversal of the slowdown underway in the economy which requires more reforms.”The Finance Minister has announced that she will come back with more reforms soon. So, there is hope,” said V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services.last_img read more
