A 17-year-old alleged serial armed robbery suspect is believed to be responsible for at least 10 armed robberies or attempted robberies in the Culver City area, police reported Monday.

The boy, a Los Angeles resident whose name was withheld because he is underage, was arrested on March 5, according to Culver City police, who said he has been linked to a Feb. 14 robbery and an attempted robbery on March 1 but is suspected in additional crimes.

The Valentine’s Day crime occurred at 6251 Bristol Parkway. Two victims were seated outside a Culver City restaurant at 8:38 p.m. when they were robbed at gunpoint, according to police.

The March 1 attempted robbery occurred at 7:51 p.m. in the parking lot of Westfield Culver City mall at 6000 Sepulveda Blvd. A 73-year-old woman was targeted as she walked to her vehicle, according to police, who said the victim was struck several times but managed to hold onto her property.

Culver City police worked in conjunction with detectives from Los Angeles Police Department’s Pacific and Wilshire Divisions in identifying the suspect.
