Wilshire: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division are investigating a home invasion robbery that injured a 71-year-old female.
On August 17, 2022, around 2:26 p.m., a lone male suspect entered a residence located in the 6600 block of West 5th Street. Once inside the location the suspect pistol whipped the victim and demanded access to a safe that contained a large amount of expensive jewelry. The suspect gained access to the safe, removed the jewelry and fled the location with the victim’s property. The victim sustained bruises and lacerations as a result of being struck by the suspect. She was treated by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics and released at scene.
This investigation is in its early stages and a total dollar amount has not been determined. Detectives are working possible leads, including video from the neighborhood, but at this time there is no confirmed suspect vehicle description, and the suspect can only be described as male wearing a “Halloween” type mask.
There is no evidence at this time to indicate that this was a “follow-home” type of robbery.
