The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for help finding a robbery crew it says has been targeting Latino construction and landscaping workers in the San Fernando Valley since January.
The suspects ask for help moving furniture and offer the victims a ride in their truck or SUV, police said. The robbers then drive the workers to a residential street, rob them at gunpoint and leave them stranded.
The robberies have occurred between 3 and 7 p.m. between Jan. 27 and March 16.
The suspects are described as 40- to 50-year-old men between 5 feet, 6 inches and 6 feet tall and weighing 240 to 300 pounds.
