Los Angeles: The Los
Angeles Police Department’s Van Nuys Division detectives are
seeking the public’s assistance to identify suspects who committed
On July 4, 2017 around 6:00 p.m., a robbery occurred in the 14900
block of Raymer Street in Van Nuys. A male suspect and a female
suspect entered a major retail store. The male suspect removed
Beats headphones from the display rack and placed them inside a
shopping bag. The female suspect acted as the look-out while the
male removed the items and concealed them inside the bag. A loss
prevention officer observed the suspects’ activities via CCTV.
After removing and concealing the items, the suspects walked past
the registers and walked towards the store’s exit/entrance. When
another loss prevention officer attempted to detain the suspects
and recover the unpaid merchandise, the male suspect pepper-sprayed
the loss prevention officer. The suspects then exited the store
with the unpaid store items & fled the scene.
Suspect one is a male Hispanic, he stands about 5 feet 6 inches to
5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs about 140 to 150 pounds, and is
approximately 23 to 26 years of age. He was last seen wearing a

unknown tattoo on his left inner elbow area.

feet 4 inches tall, weighs about 130 to 150 pounds, and is

The day before the incident, the two suspects were at a fast-food
