Police are asking for help in finding a man suspected of robbing a shoe store.

The same man is suspected in two incidents at the same WSS store on Chester Avenue.

In the first incident, in December, the man allegedly threatened to shoot workers when they tried to stop him from shoplifting. No gun was seen, but police said the man allegedly made movements around his waistband to imply he had a gun.

In the second incident, Jan. 17, employees asked him to leave and a fight broke out. The man didn't leave with any shoes.

He was seen driving a Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to call Detective Shane Shaff at (661) 326-3861.
