One Arrested In Armed Robberies, Community Still On Edge
Posted by Staff on Oct 19, 2008 - 7:44:56 PM

MELROSE—Authorities arrested one suspect after a robbery in the Melrose District. On Saturday, October 11, the LAPD and the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department were called to an incident on Waring and Fuller Avenues involving four suspects.

A man who was visiting a friend in the area was pushed to the ground and robbed at around 12:20 a.m. on Saturday morning. A security guard was returning from escorting an employee of a nearby business to her car when he saw the robbery taking place. He was able to approach the “lookout” suspect who then ran away, followed by the driver of the car and the two attackers. Upon their arrival, police sectioned off the area and sent out search units to find the suspects and were quickly able to apprehend one of the suspects. Because the case is considered ongoing and they are still looking for suspects, police are unable to release any details at this time.


This arrest is the first made in a string of robberies that have plagued the Melrose area for two months. Since August, businesses and their customers alike have been plagued by the late night armed robberies. During the week of August 8 and August 17 alone, there were seven walk-up armed robberies, which police believe are connected with recent incidents.
