Robbery Suspects Wanted

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department's Van Nuys Division detectives are seeking the public's assistance to identify five suspects who committed an armed robbery.

On September 21, 2018, around 2:30 a.m., Van Nuys officers responded to a robbery call near the intersection of Ventura Boulevard and Van Nuys Boulevard. Five suspects left a local restaurant, walking past the victim as they exited. Three of the suspects returned, wearing hooded sweatshirts and approached the victim who was still inside the restaurant.

One suspect pointed a handgun at the victim while the second and third suspects removed the victim's property. After taking the victim's property, the three suspects entered a 2012-2014 white four-door Mercedes-Benz C-Class, driven by the fourth suspect, and fled the scene.

The fifth suspect was in a 2013-2017 white Infiniti QX70 (SUV), which was parked across the street from the awaiting white Mercedes-Benz during the robbery.

After the three suspects fled the scene in the white Mercedes-Benz, the white Infiniti SUV also fled the scene behind the white Mercedes-Benz.

The suspects are five male Blacks, 20-25 years-of-age.
