The suspects ran off before police arrived, but the spree continued into the night, as two more people were robbed of their wallets as they sat in the drive thru of a restaurant by the same suspects at 11:40 p.m. in the 16800 Devonshire Street, police said. At around midnight, three more people were approached by the group of five, this time at a gas station in the 14700 block of Devonshire Street.

They were robbed, and then let out of the car. The suspects left in the SUV. Based on information obtained by the LAPD’s Mission Area Gang Enforcement Detail, police believed that the suspects where likely gang members from the Pacoima area.
