Mass Robbery Spree Occurs In Hollywood
Posted by Chet Kincaid on Jul 19, 2013 - 8:32:42 PM

HOLLYWOOD HILLS—On Tuesday, July 16 at roughly 9:30 p.m. an unusual influx of 911 calls were answered by the Hollywood division of the LAPD due to a robbery spree. The spree was carried out by a group of 30 people.

The robbery spree, said to be a reaction to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case, initially consisted of a group of 15 people, but later doubled in quantity. Of the items stolen were jewelry, phones and purses from both pedestrians and businesses.

The mass public disturbance was said to have taken place mainly between Highland Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard. The group moved from business to pedestrian, sometimes splitting into groups of 10 to 15 people.

There were no reports of the use of weapons by any of the people involved in the robberies. No serious injuries were reported with the exception of a female victim who's hand was injured in the process of her phone being stolen.

Once the 911 calls were made, it was only minutes before the Hollywood LAPD arrived onto the scene. Twelve people were arrested Of the 12 people arrested, all were under the age of 18 except for one.

Following the robberies, a news conference was held on Hollywood Boulevard on Wednesday, July 17, to address the recent situation. It was suspected that the juveniles came to Hollywood, to mimic a trend on the east coast called 'wilding.'

The robbery spree did not stop business as usual, as the public was reminded that the area remains the number one of the top tourist destinations for Los Angeles.
