LOS FELIZ — Police are asking residents near Griffith Park to check surveillance cameras to help find a pair of burglary suspects who have broken into at least two homes, and, in one case, threatening a woman with a handgun after ransacking a residence.
The first break in took place on Feb. 16 in the 3800 block of Amesbury Road, where the suspects waited for the residents to walk their dog before entering the property through the front door. The second incident took place less than an hour later in the 2400 block of Aberdeen Street. The suspects had begun ransacking the home when they were confronted by an employee at the residence. They pointed a gun at her before leaving the home in what’s described as a 2014-2015 Silver Kia Optima.
Here are descriptions of the suspects from an LAPD announcement:“Suspect-1 is described as male white, standing at 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 140-160lbs, and is around 20 to 30 years-old.
