Los Angeles: In October, Robbery-Homicide Division began an investigation into a series of eight home invasion robberies, with the possibility of two others being involved.
They have occurred between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. in the Hancock Park and Hollywood area. According to detectives, the suspect gains access into the residences through unlocked doors and windows, and then confronts the victims.
The suspect being sought is described as a male Black, 5’8"-6’0" tall. He appears to be 25 to 35 years of age, has a dark complexion and a thin moustache. The property taken is money, jewelry, clothes and credit cards. A composite drawing of the suspect will be released at the news conference. Some of the robberies have been completed by the use of bodily force and some by the use of a gun. Only one injury has been reported when one victim struggled with the suspect.
