HOLLYWOOD—The LAPD Hollywood Division Robbery Detectives are seeking the public's help in acquiring new information that may lead to the arrest of four suspects wanted for a kidnapping and robbery in the Hollywood area.


The incident occurred on July 23, at around 4 p.m. on the 8000 block of Carlton Way. While sitting in his parked vehicle, the victim was kidnapped by three suspects that emerged from a White Chevy van, which stopped beside his vehicle. Moments later, the suspects drove to a gas station. Money was exchanged, and the victim was released, according to authorities.
