In the late hours of Sunday near the intersection of 103rd Avenue and S. Avalon Boulevard, a disturbing incident unfolded as an armed suspect targeted a taco truck, leading to an assault and robbery. According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the suspect, estimated to be between 26 and 30 years old, approached the truck and forcefully ordered the workers to hand over cash.
