Three armed suspects rob home of rapper A$AP Rocky, $1.5m in jewelry stolen

- Three robbers, at least one of them armed, made off with $1.5 million in jewelry in a home invasion in Beverly Grove, police said Wednesday.

The home belongs to a rapper and songwriter A$AP Rocky, also known as Rakim Mayers, news media outlets reported.

The robbery happened about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 300 block of North Flores Street where a woman was walking into a home when she was approached by three males, said Officer Liliana Preciado of the Los Angeles Police Department's Media Relations Division.

One of the robbers produced a gun and the suspects forced the woman back into the home, Preciado said.

The suspects took the jewelry and attempted to take a safe but ended up leaving it on a sidewalk, Preciado said.

The woman, who is not the homeowner, was the only person in the home and was not injured during the invasion.

Descriptions of the suspect were not immediately available.
