The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the thieves who stole a victim’s watch and whipped her after following her to her downtown Los Angeles home on Sunday night .

The victim was driving his Lamborghini home to his residence on the 1100 block of South Grand Avenue from an upscale restaurant in Hollywood when he saw a white sedan, possibly made by Volkswagen, following him, the LAPD said in a Press release.

At around 11:15 p.m., when the victim pulled into the back alley behind his apartment building, the white sedan also spun around, police said.

Another vehicle – a sedan, possibly a Nissan – then passed the Lamborghini and stopped in the middle of the driveway, and two suspects exited the vehicles, one of whom pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded his watch, police said.

A scuffle ensued and the thieves pistol-whipped the victim, police say and video of the incident released by the LAPD.

The thieves then ran to their vehicles and fled with the other suspects who remained in the cars.

Anyone with information or video is asked to call Detective Umanzor and Detective Brown at 213-486-6840.

After hours or on weekends, calls can be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247).

Anyone wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit
