WEST HOLLYWOOD (KABC) — About $19,000 worth of watches was stolen during an overnight robbery in West Hollywood, authorities said.

It happened at around 1 am near Sunset Boulevard and Larrabee Street.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, deputies spoke with a man and a woman who said they had been robbed by “several Black males” seen driving a black Rolls-Royce vehicle.

The woman told deputies the suspects approached them while they were in their car after an altercation in a nearby parking lot.

Investigators said the suspects stole one watch from the woman and another from the man.

The suspects reportedly got in a dark-colored Rolls-Royce and were last seen going southbound toward Larrabee Street.

They were described as a group of about four to six Black males wearing dark clothing.

“The victims did not know the suspects prior to the robbery,” said the sheriff’s department in a statement released Sunday afternoon.

The sheriff’s department adds that both victims appeared to have been under the influence of alcohol and were “verbally and physically” uncooperative during the part of the investigation.
