LOS ANGELES (FOX 11 / CNS) - A security guard distracted by a woman in short shorts was overpowered at gunpoint Monday by four males who then zip-tied him, took his weapons and burglarized a multi-million dollar home in the Beverly Crest area of West Los Angeles, authorities said.
The incident began at about 1 a.m. in the 1200 block of Tower Road, Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department's Media Relations Section said.
"A female black wearing short shorts and a furry jacket distracted the guard,'' Eisenman said. That enabled four males to overpower the guard, zip-tie him, take his guns and burglarize the house -- owned by an executive in the music industry.
Authorities said the five suspects fled the scene in two separate vehicles -- a black minivan with tinted windows and a newer model, maroon sedan with paper plates.
No injuries were reported, Eisenman said.
