 - Los Angeles Hunts for Killer Robber LOS ANGELES...
Los Angeles Hunts for Killer Robber LOS ANGELES (UPD—The!lieved to have netted him about man won't take "yes" for an answer. He points the pistol, and asks for money. People give it to him and he shoots them through the head. He's done it five times. His "execution" robberies of small businesses have made him the terror of south-central Los Angeles, a largely Negro district. Beefed up details of patrolmen and detectives prowled the area today, carrying an artist's composite drawing of a goateed Negro in his late 20s or early 30s. He is slightly over six feet tall with a medium build. Described by police as a "homicidal maniac," the man is blamed for the slayings of two persons in a liquor store robbery Tuesday night and the deaths of a couple who operated a "mom-and-pop" restaurant Wednesday. He also is believed to have killed a liquor store employe in the nearby city of Commerce on Jan. 16. The three holdups are be- $2,250. The last two occurred at businesses operated by non- Negroes in a mostly Negro area. The victims of the three stickups include two white people two Japanese-Americans and a Negro. Victim of the Jan. 16 robbery was David Munoz, 30, a clerk in the Commerce liquor store. Tuesday night, Los Angeles liquor store owner Ben Dreskin, 53, was shot in the neck just after Dreskin uttered his last words to the store's clerk: 'Give him anything he wants." The gunman then shot a customer who was standing in a corner sipping a soft drink. 0. B. Hunt, 46, a Negro, died the next day. Wednesday night the robber sipped coffee at Rozy's, a small restaurant run by Ryozo Devinna, 53, and his wife, Misao, 56. Other customers finished and left. A few minutes later the Devinnas were found dead on the floor,' with their cash register empty. They had been shot in their faces from point blank range.
