Los Feliz:
Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Detectives are asking for the public's assistance in identifying two Robbery suspects.

On February 9, 2016, around 12: 50 p.m., the suspects drove in front of a residence at 3800 block of Amesbury Road, in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles.

The suspects sat in their car in front of the residence for approximately 20 minutes and observed the patterns of the homeowners. Once the homeowner left the residence to walk her dog, the suspects went up to the front door of the residence and opened the front door to commit a burglary.

The suspects heard people inside of the house and fled without taking property. The suspects possibly cased the area two days prior to the incident.

One hour later and less than one mile away, the same suspects broke into a residence in the 2500 block of Aberdeen Avenue, and began ransacking the home.

An employee of the residence was inside at the time and confronted the suspects. The suspects ran from the home with the victims' property. During the encounter, one of the suspects was armed with a handgun and pointed it directly at the victim, dissuading her from chasing them.

Suspect-1 is described as male white, standing at 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 140-160lbs, and is around 20 to 30 years-old.

Suspect-1 was wearing a black baseball cap, black shoes, black pants, and a black t-shirt with the logo "Bow Down Clothing" on the back. Suspect-1 has tattoos on both forearms.

Suspect-2 is described as a male white, standing at 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing about 130-150lbs, and is around 20-30 years old.

Suspect-2 was wearing a red shirt with the word "Carlsbad" on the back, black pants, black shoes, and has tattoos on both forearms.

Both suspect #1 and Suspect #2 are smokers and are seen on video, smoking prior to the incident.

The suspects vehicle is described as a 2014-2015 Silver Kia Optima with no front license plate, but does have a license plate in the rear.
