The Region

Two robbers stole several fur coats in a daring daytime holdup of the May Co. store in the Westside Pavilion, eluding police and security guards who gave chase. Los Angeles police said the bandits entered the second-level fur department and held a gun on a clerk before fleeing with at least two furs, worth an estimated $6,000. Store security officers chased the robbers out of the store, but lost them in the neighborhood south of the shopping center at Pico Boulevard and Overland Street. A police search of the area, with helicopters and dogs, turned up a car believed used by the robbers but the two got away.
