Bermuda Dunes Donut Shop Robbed

INDIO, Calif. - An armed man robbed a Bermuda Dunes donut shop Thursday afternoon.

Riverside County Sheriff's deputies say the man went into Teddy's Donuts about 1:20 p.m. with a handgun and demanded money from the person behind the cash register.

Teddy's Donuts is located at 40-100 Washington St.

The robber exited the business and went to a waiting car, described as a white, older-model, 1990s Toyota Corolla. Witnesses couldn't describe the getaway driver.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic, or white male in his early 20s, about 6 feet tall, 140 pounds. He had black hair, a light complexion, and was wearing a black, long-sleeved shirt and black jeans. The handgun was a black semiautomatic.

This is the second armed robbery of a Coachella Valley donut shop in less than a week. On June 29, an man held up Swiss Donuts on Highway 111 in Palm Desert. No arrest has been made in that crime.

If you have information about either holdup, call Valley Crimestoppers at (760) 341-STOP.
