Alleged thief takes selfie using victims phone

- The victims of an armed robber in Glendale are hoping a selfie will help lead to an arrest of the robbers. Three people were held up at gunpoint at a Glendale market last week by three masked men who made off with their cell phones and cash. Later that day several photos taken with one of the stolen cell phones ended up in the victim's hands.

The armed robbery happened at a store in Glendale, the store didn't have surveillance cameras, but the victims believe they have a clear photo of one of the suspects from the victim's own phone.

"They had masks, they had guns, and they laid us on the ground... I will never forget the gun on top of my head, and I don't know if I'm going to stay alive or dying," said the victim.

The robber made off with the victims' cash, wallets, cell phone, car keys, and even took cigarettes. Minutes later one of the victims received photos in his email, sent to him by his phone.

"We discovered that these people took a selfie with my phone about half an hour from the robbery," said the victim.

The owner of the store says she's so traumatized by the incident that she cannot even come back to open it up.

Sahar Ibrahim owns the Jordan Market and says she cannot get the image of the gun pointed toward her head out of her mind, she says she was also beaten by one of the suspects.

Glendale Police have not made any arrests, nor have they identified any of the suspects in the case. The victims hope someone will recognize the people in the photos and help put the robbers behind bars.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Glendale Police Department.
