The Los Angeles Police Department has released surveillance camera images of the suspects. The male suspect is described as being African American or Hispanic, approximately 35 to 40 years old and approximately six feet tall.He was wearing thick-rimmed eyeglasses. The female suspect is described as being Hispanic, 35 to 40 years old, five-feet-five-inches tall and around 150 pounds.
The suspects robbed Diamano Fine Jewelry, located on the 5th floor of the Mitta Building at 404 West 7th St., and stole approximately $8,000 in cash.
“This is among the best video of a robbery I’ve ever seen,” Det. Alfredo Rasch said. “The man with the gun seems to be the brawn in the case, while the woman seems to be the brains.”
The duo entered the small jewelry store around 3 p.m. The male suspect spoke to the store employees and then pulled a gun and forced them to kneel on the ground.The female suspect was holding zip ties for tying hands and gave orders, but never tied the victims’ hands. No one was injured during the robbery.
Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Det. Lisa Schueller at (213)972-1248.
