Cornejo said that he withdrew the money from a Chase Bank in Huntington Park on July 30, 2020, after the sale of their house.
The victim was approaching his car when a thief grabbed the money that he was carrying.
The poor man tried fell to the ground, beaten up by the crook, and was robbed.
Nathan Soleimani, the attorney of Cornejo, said:
Within 30 seconds of just getting to his car, he was grabbed, beaten, robbed, and they took everything from him.
Cornejo was left with bad bruising on his hip and right arm.
He also got his shoulder dislocated during the incident.
Attorney Soleimani and Cornejo said that he did not tell anyone that he was going to make such large withdrawal that day.
We don’t have any information to insinuate that this wasn’t random, but it just seems like a very big coincidence — how exactly did whoever involved know what was going on, or how he was coming out at that exact moment?
The assailant’s face was not visible on camera.
According to reports, the Huntington Park Police Department has launched an investigation for the robbery.
They are currently looking for CCTV footage that could help them track the thug that stole the money.
