One suspect believed to have been involved in the robbery has been arrested; one remains at large. A helicopter and other police agencies assisted Hermosa police.

Christobal Garcia, 21, of San Pedro was arrested for an alleged robbery around 2:46 a.m. Sunday in the 100 block of 21st Street, said Detective Mick Gaglia of the Hermosa Beach Police Department.

Garcia and another suspect physically assaulted a man and took his wallet. Gaglia said force was used but no weapon was found when Garcia was arrested.

The second suspect is described as a black male adult, 5'11" with a slender build. He was unshaven and wearing a blue plaid shirt and jeans when he fled the scene, according to Hermosa Beach Neighborhood Watch.

A helicopter from the Hawthorne Police Department and police from Manhattan Beach and other nearby agencies assisted Hermosa PD.
