The victim of a robbery in Santa Monica pursues thieves who open fire while trying to escape

The Santa Monica Police Department is seeking help from the public after a robbery resulted in a car-to-car shootout in Santa Monica on Monday.

The argument began at about 2:00 p.m. in the 2600 block on 34th Street, where a man was trying to park his car.

A black limousine stopped, then a passenger got out and asked the man for a cellphone and wallet, Lt. said. Rudy Flores from the police.

The man turned his valuables over, said Flores.

“The suspects then fled with the vehicle. And the victim, trying to get a better description of the vehicle or license plate, followed the suspects, ”said Flores.

The victim chased the thieves for nearly a mile, and on Pico Boulevard a robber fired his gun at the chased victim, Flores said, but he was not injured.

“We are very concerned not only for the victim, but also for the public that was there during that time,” he said.

The police are looking for the suspects, who are believed to be driving a newer Nissan Versa or similar four-door sedan. The car is also said to have chrome wheels and tinted windows, Flores said.

The police don’t believe the robbers knew the man.

“We currently have no information to suggest this,” said Flores.

The Sagittarius is said to be a man in his late 20s with straight, shoulder-length brown hair and brown or gray eyes. He wore a hoodie and covered the lower half of his face with a black bandana while filming.

There is no information about the driver.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the police at 310-458-8451 or 310-458-8427.
