Two armed suspects robbed a man about a block away from his Beverly Hills home on the border of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills early Saturday, then forced the man back to his home where they attempted to steal his vehicle before crashing it.
The victim was unharmed in the robbery, which was reported at 12:15 a.m. in the area of Schumacher and Commodore Sloat drives, according to Sgt. Patrick Welsh of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Division.
The man had just parked his car but decided to go for a walk, crossing into Los Angeles when he was approached by two males with handguns.
The suspects stole the man’s phone and car keys before they walked him back to his home to show them where his car was. Welsh said. When they arrived at the victim’s residence, the man fled to safety, Welsh said.
The suspects tried to steal the man’s SUV but crashed it while pulling out of the man’s narrow driveway, Welsh said.
The suspects fled on foot. Descriptions of the gunmen were not available.
