Downtown Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division are seeking the public’s help in locating Dashawn Dow, a 20-year-old resident of Los Angeles. Detectives have identified Dow as a suspect in a series of follow-home violent robberies that occurred in the Los Angeles area.
On October 2, 2023, around 1:30 p.m., video surveillance captured a grey Maserati following a male and female victim into the parking structure of their North Hollywood apartment complex. As the victims exited their vehicle, they were confronted by two armed suspects who demanded the victims’ property. Fearing for their lives, the victims complied with the suspects’ demands. The suspects then fled with the victims’ money and jewelry.
On October 10, 2023, around 12:10 a.m., a male and female victim were confronted by two male Black suspects in the parking structure of their North Hollywood apartment complex. One of the suspects attempted to remove the victim’s watch forcibly from his wrist. When the victim resisted, the other suspect pressed a gun against his chest. Fearing for his life, the victim relinquished his property, and the suspects ran to a waiting getaway vehicle. Detectives believe that Dow was involved in both incidents and that he used a firearm in the commission of the crimes.
In the past 18 months, Dow has been arrested five times for robbery but was able to post bond following each arrest. Dow has been identified in two additional follow-home style robberies that occurred in the downtown area of Los Angeles and is a person of interest in other criminal investigations. Dow is currently at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.
