The LAPD is asking for the public's help identifying three suspects who tied up a jewelry merchant at gunpoint and robbed him.
Authorities released surveillance video of the suspects on Wednesday.
The robbery happened October 13 around 4 p.m., at a business located in a multi-story building near 6th and Hill streets in downtown Los Angeles.
The three suspects entered the building and separated, presumably waiting for the jewelry merchant, according to police.
When the target reached his office, one of the suspects, armed with a semi-automatic handgun, forced him to open his office door.
Then, the other two suspects entered.
They tied the merchant up and stole his personal property, as well as an undisclosed amount of merchandise, police said.
The suspects are described as three, 25 to 30-year-old African American men.
The first suspect is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 170-180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue plaid shirt and blue jeans, and he has a distinctive hairline.
The second suspect is described as 6 feet tall, weighing 150-160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white long sleeve dress shirt, dark pants, and sunglasses.
And the third suspect is about 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weighs 175-190 pounds, with a stocky build. He was last seen wearing a dark blue baseball cap, a dark colored long sleeved shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call Robbery Homicide Division detectives at (213) 486-6840.
