HOLLYWOOD—The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects for an attempted murder in the Hollywood area.

On Sunday, June 16, two men walked into the Petco on the 7200 block of Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood and asked about pet adoption. One of the suspects then removed two spotted chihuahuas from their cages and tried to leave the store.

A Petco employee tried to stop the men from leaving and was punched in the head by one of the suspects.
