PRESS RELEASE
Thursday, April 1, 1999


On Wednesday, March 31, 1999, at approximately 10:45 a.m., two suspects entered the victims home located in the 6200 Block of Olympic Boulevard. Once inside suspect #1, (a Male, Black, black hair, brown eyes, 6'3" tall, 185 pounds, 18 to 25 years old, light complexion, short hair, and thin mustache), armed with a handgun (blue steel revolver), ordered the husband to lay on the floor while suspect #2, (a Male, Black, black hair, brown eyes, 5'8" tall, 180 pounds, 18 to 25 years old, dark complexion, and neat curly hair), tied his wrists. While this was occurring suspect #1 confronted the wife and demanded property.

When the suspects turned their attention away from the husband, he was able to free himself and run outside for help. As the husband was yelling for help the two suspects fled the location in a 1991 blue Saturn. The husband observed the suspects flee and chased them in his personal car until the suspects collided with another vehicle. Both suspects then fled on foot. The vehicle used by the suspects was an unreported 77th Division stolen vehicle and was recovered at the scene. The victims were not injured in the attack. The suspects are still outstanding. The property taken was a wedding ring, currency and other miscellaneous jewelry.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is requested to call Wilshire Robbery Detectives at 213-473-0444.
