By Sam Catanzaro

Santa Monica police are searching for suspects wanted for robbing a victim who had just parked their car in Santa Monica recently. 

According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on Monday around 2:00 p.m. the victim parked his vehicle on the 2600 block of 34th Street when a black sedan stopped in front of him. 

“The front passenger of that vehicle walked to  the victim’s vehicle, pulled out a handgun and demanded the victim’s cellphone and wallet. Fearing for  his life, the victim gave him both.   The suspect returned to his vehicle and fled. The victim followed behind the suspects and while traveling  eastbound on Pico Blvd the suspect leaned out the passenger side window and fired multiple rounds at the victim,” the SMPD said in a statement. 

Police say the victim continued to follow until the suspects were last seen driving eastbound on the I-10 freeway on-ramp at Centinela Avenue. 

The SMPD describes the suspect vehicle as a newer black Nissan Versa, 4 door sedan with dark tinted windows and black and chrome wheels. Suspect 1, the passenger, iis described as a man in his late twenties, straight shoulder-length brown hair, brown or grey eyes, wearing a hoodie and a black bandana that covered the lower half of his face. A description of Suspect 2, the driver, is unknown. 

Anyone with any information pertaining to this incident, the suspect or vehicle involved, is  encouraged to contact SMPD Detective Tavera at 310-458-2256 or the Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310- 458-8426.   

“It is important that we remind our community that we do not encourage anyone to endanger themselves further by  trying to follow or chase a suspect involved in a serious  crime.  We ask that they focus on being a good witness and try to obtain a detailed description of the vehicle and parties involved then immediately contacting the police for assistance,” the SMPD added.
