Armed Robbery Under Investigation in Agoura

The victim told investigators the suspect held a knife to his neck and said "Gimme your money or I'll kill you."

A robber held a knife to the throat of a man in an Agoura parking lot and stole $480 in cash earlier this month.

The armed robbery was reported at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 16 on Roadside Drive near Cheseboro Road in Agoura Hills, according to investigators at the Lost Hills/Malibu Sheriff's Station.

The victim was sitting in his Toyota Tundra truck with the door open when a man with a bandanna over his face walked up with a four-inch knife.

The suspect told the victim “Do the right thing” and “Gimme your money or I’ll kill you!” according to investigators.

The victim, fearing for his safety, handed over his wallet, which had four $100 bills and $80 in cash.

The suspect got into a gold colored vehicle with a male driver and left the area.

 The investigation is ongoing.

The math is $480. Not $800.

Thank you for catching the error.

That's certainly a warning to close your door when you get in your vehicle, & leave promptly. Now that that robber has succeeded so easily, there's incentive to do it again. I think we feel too safe in our vehicles, now we know differently.

Along the lines of the journalistic 5W's, what was the description of the suspect(s)? And by the way, it's not so much that Agoura was targeted. That location would be right at the freeway on/off ramp and near, if not at, a gas station. These locations are primo for anyone just passing thru the area. Remember the robbery (guy was armed with a shotgun) of the Mobil station on the Reyes Adobe on ramp about 2004?
