Victim Kidnapped and Residence Burglarized NR11182lpk

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Foothill Division detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that would lead to the arrest of three suspects who kidnapped a victim and burglarized the victims’ residence in the Tujunga area.

On April 22, 2011, at around 11 p.m., Foothill officers responded to a radio call of a screaming woman in the 9800 block of Cabanas Avenue. Upon arrival, officers discovered that three male suspects had entered the victims’ residence and restrained a husband and wife.
 
The two suspects forced the husband into his car and made him drive to his business in North Hollywood with the intention to commit a robbery. The remaining suspect stayed at the victim’s house with his wife.

The crime was discovered and reported to police when the victims’ daughter returned home.

Officers responded to the business in an effort to intercept the suspects and safely return the victim; however, the suspects evaded capture. The suspects later released the male victim unharmed in Van Nuys. After taking his car and driving to an unknown location, the victim’s abandoned car was found later.

The suspects are described as three male Hispanics, 20-25 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Foothill Robbery Detective Dave Escoto at 818-834-3109 or Detective Bob Veliz at 818-834-3160. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
