An armed robbery filmed in West Hollywood – NBC Los Angeles

Two people are wanted in the armed robbery of two tourists that was filmed in West Hollywood.

The theft was reported early Friday morning near La Cienega and Santa Monica boulevards. The victims, English tourists who had been in southern California for about a day, said they were approached by two men who demanded their belongings as they were leaving a nightclub.

“They jumped on us, grabbed us,” Williams Saunders said. “One of them had a small handgun on him, he pointed it at my head.

“I’ve never even seen a gun before, let alone have one to my head.”

Saunders ran to a nearby restaurant. His friend struggled with the thieves on the street.

The men took their Rolex watches, worth $50,000 and $27,000, the victims said. They also left with around $5,000 in cash and a Christian Dior bag containing important travel documents.

No serious injuries were reported.
