CANOGA PARK, California. – Robbers attacked a security guard and stole approximately $ 25,000 worth of designer bags from a Nordstrom store at the Westfield Topanga mall in Canoga Park on Wednesday night, November 24.
Alan Hamilton, the deputy chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, told ABC7 that the robbers rushed in the door and took several expensive wallets.
A group of at least five men – one in an orange wig – walked into the store at around 7:00 p.m., stole wallets, exited the store, hopped into a gray new-model Ford Mustang that sped away from the scene, according to ABC7 and KCAL9.
The guard was treated with a caustic chemical and taken to hospital for treatment, although no details were given.
The robbery came two days after a mob of at least 20 robbed a Nordstrom store in the prestigious Grove mall in Fairfax on Monday night. The robbery suspects fled the scene in at least four vehicles.
Three suspects were arrested in South Los Angeles after the chase. The officers seized several items of clothing from the car, at least one cash register and gloves.
