Manuel Guzman, 26, of Long Beach, remained hospitalized Thursday in connection with the 12:30 p.m. robbery Tuesday at Credit Investigations USA, 12939 S. Hawthorne Blvd. Police later located the abandoned getaway vehicle and, on Wednesday, arrested Luis Fernando Flores, 33, of Pacoima, on suspicion of robbery. Detectives are looking for more suspects connected to the crime in which three robbers barged into the business. One beat a male employee in the head with a gun. They escaped with $100 and a female employee’s purse, cash and jewelry. But they didn’t make a clean getaway.
