Authorities captured two men and were searching for two more after a report of a robbery at Northridge Fashion Center on Thursday afternoon.

Officers responded around 2:40 P.M. to the 9300 block of Tampa Avenue for a report of possible robbery suspects inside the mall, said Officer Matthew Cruz, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson.

At some point, officers chased the suspects’ vehicle — a burgundy sedan, Cruz said.

As of around 5 p.m., authorities had set up a perimeter around the mall and were searching for the four suspects, he said.


The perimeter was taken down by shortly after 6 p.m. and officers had two of the suspects in custody, Cruz said.

There were no reports of shots fired or injuries, he said.

Further information about the incident wasn’t available.
