Fairfax Corridor Hit by Rash of Street Robberies NR12072cj

Los Angeles:  LAPD Wilshire Area Detectives investigating a string of street robberies that occurred Wednesday night, occurring within a two hour period, all along and near the Fairfax Avenue corridor.

On February 8, 2012, around 7 p.m., a series of street robberies began near Fairfax Avenue and Beverly Boulevard.  The same two suspects are believed to be responsible for the crime spree.  All of the victims were men on foot who were approached by the suspects demanding cash, wallets, cell phones and other personal property.  No weapons were seen, but the suspect’s used fear and the threat of a gun to commit the robberies.

They are African Americans in their 20’s, 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall, and weighing 150 to 190 pounds.  One suspect had cornrowed hair.  The suspects may have changed their head gear as victim’s described the suspects as wearing either a dark beanie cap, a dark hoodie shirt and still another described one suspect as wearing a red “do-rag”.  The suspects may be driving a 1990’s tan Oldsmobile sedan with a partial California license plate of “432”.

Detectives want to remind the public to stay aware of their surroundings and attempt to walk in pairs while walking in well-lit areas.

Anyone with information about this incident or the whereabouts of the two suspects is asked to call Wilshire Robbery Detectives 213-473-0514 or 213-922-8205.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers 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.
