CU System
Member pistol-whipped in takeover robbery
WEST COVINA, Calif. (12/21/10)--A member of First Financial CU, West Covina, Calif., was treated at a hospital for injuries he received after he was pistol-whipped during a robbery Friday morning. Police also said an employee struck by the robbers suffered no visible injuries and declined to be taken to a hospital (WhittierDailyNews.com Dec. 17). Two men in hoodies and ski masks entered the credit union and told five employees plus members to lie down. One brandished a gun and one jumped on the counter. They ordered a manager to open cash drawers and a vault and fled with an undetermined amount of cash in a black compact car. The member was injured as he tried to enter the credit union. He confronted one of the robbers and there was a struggle. He suffered abrasions to his head.
