LAPD warns Silver Lake Reservoir joggers to watch our for robbers

The joggers and walkers who circle the Silver Lake reservoirs were advised to unplug their iPods and headphones  after two runners were recently robbed of portable electronics.

The separate robberies have taken place since April 28 in the evening as at least three or four suspects described as Latino males have taken electronics from the victims, in one case threatening one of the joggers with a weapon, according to an alert issued Thursday by the LAPD Northeast Division.

The Eastsider reported a first-hand account of the one of the victims, who was robbed on Monday night at West Silver Lake Drive and Hawick Street.

The suspects were described as being between the ages of 16 to 20 with black hair and brown eyes; 5′-5″ to 6′-0″ in height; and 160-200 pounds. The robbers fled in cars that resembled either a  late 1990s silver or tan Toyota  square back with tinted windows or a silver, four-door Honda.

Police advised the joggers and walkers who circle the Silver Lake reservoirs to leave their iPhones/iPods, headphones and /MP3 players at home.

“Joggers are also encouraged to jog around the Silver Lake reservoir during daylight hours and preferably with a partner.”

  1. Or the lapd could do their job and protect. Lol this is a million dollar home neighborhood. The only reason these guys felt comfy committing the crimes is because lapd is hopelessly out of the loop
    In EP and silverlake.

    “robbers”

    Ha

  4. While it doesn’t specify in the LAPD Alert Channel 7 news just reported that the “weapon” was a gun.

  5. LAPD is a joke. This is America, not Tijuana. You should be able to walk around your neighborhood with whatever personal possessions without fear of being terrorized. LAPD should have just said, “thanks, but no thanks”.

    Here’s an idea, how about the LAPD stake out the place and catch the fools that are doing this.
