Video released last week showed the moment three suspects, one armed with an AK-47, approach two men in West Hollywood and robbed them.
According to the LA County Sheriff's Department, the incident happened April 25 around 9:40 p.m. near the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Orlando Avenue right behind the restaurant La Boheme.
A male suspect, armed with an assault rifle, and two female suspects, armed with handguns, approached two men as they were walking in an alley and demanded their property. One of the victims was struck in the face with the handgun. Officials say a man walking on the sidewalk tried to intervene but was also robbed.

"When we walk the street and see video military style assault weapons on our streets at 9'o clock at night, that is not a sense of safety, that is not a sense of security and we can feel it," said Alan Strasberg vice-chair of WeHo for the People.
