Follow-home robbers strike again in North Hollywood

Police were investigating yet another follow-home robbery that occurred overnight in the San Fernando Valley to three people who were returning home from a night out in Hollywood. 

Around 3 a.m. Friday, a couple was being dropped off in a Mercedes in North Hollywood when another vehicle pulled up behind them and two armed men jumped out and robbed them at gunpoint, police said.

In a matter of seconds, the suspects took off with Rolex watches, cash, and cell phones. The victims said the suspects even took the key to the Mercedes. 

"They put a gun in my face. In the moment, they took my Rolex, they took my diamond bracelet, they took my girlfriend’s Rolex, they took our iPhones, $2,000 cash from my pocket, they took everything," the male victim told FOX 11’s Gigi Graciette. "They told me, ‘if you’re not going to shut up, I’m going to [shoot you] in your face.’"
