CULVER CITY, Calif.—Authorities are seeking four suspects who followed four people to their home in Culver City, where they robbed and assaulted them at gunpoint on March 11.

Officers from the Culver City Police Department were called to the 3600 block of Wesley Avenue at 12:23 a.m. on Friday regarding an armed robbery and assault. They learned that four victims had left a nearby business, and when they returned home were confronted by four suspects, who exited a dark SUV and pointed handguns with laser pointers at them, Sgt. Eddie Baskaron said.

The suspects demanded the victims’ possessions, pistol-whipped one victim and stole another victim’s phone, a Rolex watch valued at $30,000, keys, and a wallet, Baskaron said.

Officers recovered an abandoned magazine containing multiple .40 caliber rounds at the scene, which allegedly fell from the suspect’s firearm after he pistol-whipped the victim, police said.

Witnesses told police the suspects fled in a black SUV. They were described as four men wearing face masks and dark clothing.

Anyone with any information regarding the crime was asked to call Baskaron at 310-253-6316 or the watch commander at 310-253-6202.
