The incident happened around 2 a.m. on Friday morning. An LAPD official told Fox News, “At around 2:05 this morning a robbery occurred in front of a residence on Blue Jay Way in the Hollywood Hills area.”
After following the victims to the home, two suspects exited their vehicle armed with handguns and wore ski masks while a third suspect remained in the vehicle. The suspects then forced two victims onto the ground where they removed their property, watches, and jewelry.
