$1 million worth of property stolen in violent Hollywood Hills home-invasion robbery, police say
An estimated $1 million worth of property was stolen from a Hollywood Hills home early Wednesday in a violent robbery, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The two victims were asleep at the home in the 3000 block of Multiview Drive about 3 a.m., when they woke up to screaming and a handgun pointed at them, said Officer Melissa Podany, an LAPD spokesperson. The suspects, who were in ski masks, demanded property and one pistol-whipped one of the victims during the robbery, according to police.
The man who was pistol-whipped declined medical care but suffered minor injuries, Podany said. Officers were called to the scene about 3:30 a.m., and the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division is taking over the investigation.
Two people were walking their dogs in Boyle Heights when someone pointed a pistol at them, took the two dogs and fled in a vehicle, according to the LAPD.
Police have not released descriptions for the multiple suspects, and Podany said officials did not yet know exactly how many were involved in the home-invasion robbery.
Podany did not know what kind of property was stolen.
