PACIFIC PALISADES— Several suspects attempted to rob a couple at gunpoint this past Sunday night, June 13, while walking down a street in Pacific Palisades.
The victims, whose names have not been released by the LAPD, were walking together on Via De Las Olas, when they were approached by three young men, one of them armed with a gun, attempting to rob them.
After holding the victims at gunpoint, the suspects began to physically assault the male victim, while attempting to steal belongings from his pockets. It’s unclear if they attempted to rob any of the female victim’s belongings as well. After unloading a shot from their firearm, all three suspects abruptly sped away in a green Toyota and have not been found.
The first of three suspects was identified as a Hispanic male with dark hair, standing 5’7″, weighing 140 lbs, and looked to be about 20 years of age; the second suspect was a Hispanic male, with black hair, brown eyes, standing 5’9″, 180 lbs and 19 years of age; the third suspect was a black male, six feet tall and weighing about 200 lbs.
The incident happened at 9:30 p.m. on 15500 Via De Las Olas. Neither victim suffered any serious injuries. While the suspects had attempted to rob the couple, police haven’t confirmed which of their property or belongings were ultimately stolen.
