Two men, two women meet at an exclusive West LA restaurant. The women are invited back to an apartment. Now police are trying to identify the women who are suspected of leaving one of the men with serious injuries and making off with two expensive watches.
Accoridng to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) on October 28, 2019, around 9:35 p.m., two female suspects visited an exclusive restaurant in West Los Angeles, where they met two male victims who were having dinner. The LAPD says both suspects and both victims left the location and went to one of the victim’s residence located on the 6500 block of Lindenhurst Avenue where the female suspects mixed alcoholic beverages, which were later consumed by the victims.
“Suspect #1 stayed inside the residence with one of the victims. Suspect #2 went outside with the other victim. Suspect #2 walked inside the residence to use the restroom. When suspect #2 did not return, the victim went inside to check on her and discovered both female suspects were gone, and his male friend was lying unconscious inside the downstairs bedroom area. The victim called for paramedics. It was later determined that two very expensive wrist watches were stolen from his residence,” the LAPD said.
The LAPD says they are releasing neither the name of the restaurant nor the type of watches. In addition, they said that they are not specifying which of the victims was the owner of the apartment.
Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded and transported the victim to a local hospital in serious but stable condition.
