BRENTWOOD—Next time you hear an unexpected knock at the door this fall, think twice about answering it. The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying four members of the knock-knock burglary crew who have targeted homes in West Los Angeles and Beverly Hills.


The Los Angeles Police Department reports that around 4:10 p.m. on Tuesday, September 4, suspects knocked on the door of a home in the 12600 block of W. Sunset Bl. The suspects then tried to enter the house through the side gate when no one answered. As the suspects walked towards the side gate they were confronted on the drive way by the victim who had heard their knock at the front door shortly before. The suspects then got into their car after one punched the victim in the face, and left the residence in an unknown direction.


The four suspects are all described as black males, 18-25 years old, one was wearing a white tank top, with brown shorts and blue shoes, police said. The suspect’s vehicle is described as a four door ”˜98-”˜03 black Lincoln Continental or a Towncar with a partial license plate of 4k-k--- or 4k-k3--.


Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact West Los Angeles Area Burglary Detective C. White at 310-444-1522/24. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
