Armed robbery gang at Irvine Mall, safest city in Southern California

The Irvine Police Department, known as the “safest city” in Southern California’s Orange County, issued a 27-day information appeal to the public to help provide clues about the four armed robbers who were spotted in a local shopping center in the late afternoon of Sunday the 25th, so that they can be apprehended as soon as possible; all four robbery suspects were African-American men, one of whom was armed with a handgun. The four robbery suspects are all African-American men, and one of them is armed with a handgun.

Police said that shortly before 4:00 p.m. on the 25th, police were called to an attempted robbery at a shopping center located at the intersection of Harvard Street and Main Road. A male victim was parked and walking through the parking lot when a passing white Mercedes-Benz sedan stopped and two men got out of the car, while a nearby gray Nissan sedan also got out of two men, one of whom was armed with a gun and aimed at the victim.

When the victim saw the attempted armed robbery, he ran quickly toward a nearby restaurant, followed by the four robbers. The victim ran into the restaurant and hurriedly closed the door to try to stop the four robbers from breaking in. The four robbers then gathered together around a white Land Rover in the parking lot and appeared to communicate with someone in the car, before the four robbers drove off.

According to police information, the four robbers were all African-American men, dressed casually, with hoodies on their tops, and one of the robbers was armed with a handgun. It is not yet known why the victim was the target of the robbery attempt, but it is certain that the robbers followed the victim from Los Angeles to Irvine. The victim was also not a resident of Irvine, but was just passing through the city on his way to another city. Police say the case is an isolated incident and does not yet pose a threat to community safety.

The case is under further investigation and anyone with information can call Irvine Police Detective Haldor Larum at 949-724-7194 or 或电邮[email protected]
