Follow-Home Armed Robbery, Suspects Arrested

This morning, Culver City Police Detectives arrested two men in connection with a recent follow-home robbery that occurred in Culver City a few days prior.  During the robbery, one victim was violently pistol whipped and a second victim had their Rolex and phone stolen at gunpoint. 
On March 11, 2022, at approximately 12:23 am, Culver City Police Officers received a call for service at the 3600 Block of Wesley Ave. regarding the aforementioned armed robbery and assault.  The initial investigation that night led officers to believe this was likely a follow-home robbery.
Culver City Police Detectives immediately initiated a thorough investigation and quickly identified two possible suspects, Khalil Thompson (24 years old) and Micah McDonald (23 years old).    After establishing significant probable cause to believe McDonald and Thompson were both involved in the armed follow-home robbery, Culver City Police Detectives obtained arrest warrants for both individuals, as well as a search warrant for their associated residence.
This morning, March 15, 2022, members of the Culver City Police Department Emergency Response Team (ERT/SWAT), along with members from Beverly Hills Police Department SWAT, conducted a high-risk arrest and search warrant operation in the City of Los Angeles.  The operation resulted in the arrest of both Khalil Thompson and Micah McDonald without incident.  Thompson and McDonald were transported and booked at the Culver City Police Department for robbery and aggravated assault charges. 
Both Thompson and McDonald are actively on parole and have extensive criminal arrest history, including for burglary, armed robbery, and attempted murder.  Thompson and McDonald are known criminal street gang members suspected to be involved in other follow-home robberies in the region.
During the search warrant of the associated residence, Culver City Police Detectives located multiple firearms and other items of evidentiary value. 
This case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration and this investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with any information or questions regarding this incident, please contact the Culver City Police Department’s Public Information Officer, Sergeant Eddie Baskaron at 310-253-6316.
