STUDIO CITY—The Los Angeles Police Department’s North Hollywood Division detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a woman who allegedly drugged and robbed two men of their valuables after meeting them at a Hollywood nightclub, according to a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) on Wednesday, June 7.
On March 5, the woman met with the victims, Stan and Gary, at the Argyle nightclub in Hollywood and returned with them to their Studio City apartment. She allegedly made them drinks, and they both passed out.
“It was determined an unknown substance was used to poison or drug the victims, causing them to become incapacitated,” the statement indicated. “The suspect then removed jewelry and money from the victims and from their residences.”
According to LAPD Detective Joseph Hampton, the suspect is believed to have targeted affluent men wearing high-end accessories. More than $200,000 worth of valuables were stolen, including luxury watches, a bracelet, and $50,000 in cash. The LAPD have released images of the stolen items and surveillance images of the suspect entering and leaving the apartment building.
The suspect is described as a 20-year-old black woman who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 120 pounds. She has large tattoos on her left leg, left hip, and back, according to the statement. Police believe the suspect may be connected to similar incidents in Beverly Hills and the West Los Angeles area.
