Suspect Sought in Home Invasion Robbery NR10574AP

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Area detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect who robbed a woman in her home.  

On December 6, 2010, at around 11:15 p.m., the victim returned to her home located in the 8100 block of Westlawn Avenue, in the Westchester area of Los Angeles.  As she rested on her couch, a male suspect confronted her at gunpoint.  When the victim began to scream, the suspect grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the floor.  The suspect then fired one round from his handgun towards the victim.  Alerted by the sound of gunfire and the victim’s screams, her husband entered the room, distracted the suspect allowing the victim to run outside and call for help.

The suspect is described as a White male, with blue eyes, stands 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall,  weighs 170-185 pounds, about 18-25 years old.  The suspect was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, and a ski mask with cut-outs for the eyes and mouth.  The suspect left the location in a large, 2000-2004, American-made sedan.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Pacific Area Detectives at
310-482-6396.  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.
