ANTELOPE VALLEY – Armed robbers held up a snack bar at the Little Rock Dam Resort Friday afternoon, authorities said.
Deputies responded to the call around 4:15 p.m. at The Dam Grill at 32700 Cheseboro Road, according to Palmdale Station Watch Commander Lt. Sylvies.
Sylvies said the store was open, but there were no customers and just one employee inside the store at the time of the incident.
The 22-year-old employee told authorities that three Black males wearing bandanas over their faces entered the store, and one of the men was armed with a handgun, Sylvies said.
“They locked the employee into a storage room in the back,” Sylvies said.
He said the thieves did not take any money from The Dam Grill, but they stole several weapons that belonged to the store’s owner.
Two rifles, two handguns and an air rifle/pellet gun were taken, according to a Palmdale Station broadcast.
A detailed description of the suspects was not immediately available. Sylvies said the three men were probably in their early to mid 20s and were traveling in a small tan vehicle.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Palmdale Station at 661-272-2400. If you would to remain anonymous, you may do so by calling Crimestoppers at 800-222-8477.
