VIDEO: Man violently punched in armed robbery at South LA taco truck

Police are investigating after a man was assaulted during the armed robbery of a taco truck in South Los Angeles overnight. 

It happened Sunday just before midnight near the intersection of 103rd Avenue and S. Avalon Boulevard. 

The armed suspect, described as a man between 26 and 30-years-old, approached the truck and ordered the workers inside to hand over cash -- while physically holding a man at gunpoint, police said.

He then demanded cash from that man before he and his accomplice, a man between 18 and 20-years-old, fled the scene in a vehicle described as possibly a white Honda accord.

Police said the victim was not seriously hurt. 

The LAPD's Southeast station urged anyone with information about the robbery to call them at 213-972-7828. Anonymous tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or go directly to
