Van Nuys Home Invasion and RobberyLos Angeles: A home invasion and robbery occurred in the 15000 block of Wyandotte Street in Van Nuys early this morning at about 2:20 a.m. when four or five suspects described as Black males dressed in dark clothing and hooded sweatshirts knocked on the residential front door of rap music producer Noel Fisher, also known as "Detail."
After pushing their way in, using physical force and simulating the use of guns, suspects forced the two residents to lie on the floor as they ransacked the home and took computers, software, jewelry and other equipment belonging to the record producer. The suspects then left the area in an unknown vehicle.
