On Friday, July 11, 2008, Detectives assigned to the Special Investigations Section, were investigating two suspects believed to be involved in a string of robberies in the Los Angeles area. At around 6:00 a.m., the investigating detectives witnessed the suspects commit an attempt armed robbery at Lawry's Restaurant located in the City of Beverly Hills.
