During the past few months, Los Angeles has seen an increase in brazen crimes, the majority of which are carried out at gunpoint, which has led to an increase in armed robberies that target homes.
Two people were arrested on Friday in connection with an attempted follow-home robbery that targeted four tourists in Los Angeles. According to investigators, one of the suspects accidentally shot another while they were reportedly unloading the stolen property from a vehicle. Both suspects were taken into custody on Friday.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, Artiz Alvarez and Chanz Lee Yarbrough, both of whom are residents of Los Angeles, have been detained for a variety of crimes as a direct result of the house invasion that occurred on April 20.
The four vacationers, all of whom were guys and all hailing from Northern California, had just arrived at their Airbnb a few moments before the incident took place. At approximately 12:45 in the morning, three individuals approached the officers as they were exiting their car and held them at gunpoint, according to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
Two of the three suspects were reportedly armed with handguns, and the third was armed with a rifle, according to the officials. According to the authorities in Los Angeles, California, at least one victim was pistol-whipped and coerced into entering a dwelling, where they were told to lie down while the home was ransacked. The incident reportedly took place in California.
