A man armed with a assault-type rifle demanded a woman’s car keys and wallet Wednesday at an El Monte doughnut shop, then drove off in her vehicle, police reported.

The crime occurred about 7:30 a.m. near Santa Anita Avenue and Asher Street. The 25- to 30-year-old suspect “pointed what was described as an assault-type rifle at the victim” and also pointed the weapon at a second person inside the shop, police said.

Authorities this afternoon were investigating an unconfirmed report that the vehicle may have been found in Buena Park.
