A man was arrested Wednesday in connection with a home invasion robbery after he allegedly pistol-whipped a 71-year-old woman in her Beverly Grove home before stealing expensive jewelry and fleeing the scene, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Detectives arrested 31-year-old Los Angeles resident Dillon Anthony Klincke on suspicion of robbery, according to a police news release. Klincke’s bail has been set at $175,000.

Earlier Wednesday, a home invasion robbery was reported at 2:26 p.m. in the 6600 block of 5th Street, said Officer Rosario Cervantes, a police spokesperson. A man wearing a “Halloween"-type mask pistol-whipped the female resident of the home and demanded access to a safe, which contained high-end jewelry, Cervantes said.

Police said they are still trying to determine the dollar amount that was stolen and the investigation is still in its early stages.
