Police in Seal Beach asked Tuesday for the public’s help in locating a man suspected of stealing three iPhones from a T-mobile store.

Officers received a call about 7 p.m. Sunday reporting a robbery at the store at 13936 Seal Beach Blvd. On arrival, they began searching for the suspect, but he was not located, according to Sgt. Mike Henderson of the Seal Beach Police Department.

An investigation revealed a man entered the store and removed phones from a display and when an employee attempted to contact the man, he flashed a handgun concealed in his waistband, Henderson said.

The man did not fire the weapon or point it at employees during the robbery, he said.

The suspect left the store and fled the scene in a dark, older model Honda Civic, Henderson said.

The suspect was described as Hispanic, approximately 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall and 190 to 210 pounds, with black hair worn in a short buzz type haircut and brown eyes, Henderson said. He was wearing a black baseball cap with a “Michael Jordan” emblem, a black, gray and white t-shirt with pink writing on the front and right sleeve, light gray or faded black jeans, and white, gray and black Jordan “Pro Strong” shoes. He was wearing a gold or silver ring on his right ring finger, Henderson said.

Anyone with information on the incident was asked call Detective Jeff Gibson at (562) 799-4100 ext. 1109.
