Strong-Arm Robbery  the City of West Hollywood

On Sunday May 8th, 2022, West Hollywood Station received a call of a possible battery call at the 8800 block of Sunset Boulevard in the City of West Hollywood, at approximately 12:52am. When deputies arrived at the location they contacted two people, later identified as the victims. Both victims appeared to have been under the influence of alcohol and were verbally and physically uncooperative during the initial part of the investigation.   

The female victim told deputies they were robbed by several male Black adults who were driving a black Rolls-Royce vehicle. The suspects approached the victims, who were in their vehicle, after an altercation in the parking lot. The suspects stole one watch from the female victim and one watch from the male victim using bodily force. The watches are described as a female “Michael Kors” brand, valued at $1,000 and a “Rolex” brand, valued at $18,000. After the robbery the suspects entered the dark colored Rolls-Royce and drove away southbound towards Larrabee Street, and out of view.
The suspects were described as 4-6 male Black adults, wearing dark clothing. The victims did not know the suspects prior to the robbery.  All the suspects are still outstanding. One of the victims sustained minor injuries during the incident.
