During the robbery, the suspects assaulted and pepper sprayed a security guard, Deputy Chief Alan Hamilton said. At least one of the suspects wore an orange wig, KABC reported. CNN has contacted the LAPD for more information.
Also on Wednesday, police said at least four people stole $ 20,000 worth of merchandise from an Apple store in Santa Rosa, about 90 miles north of San Francisco.
“In a cheeky daytime burglary in front of customers and staff, suspects seized more than $ 20,000 in merchandise from the store and fled the area in an unknown vehicle,” Santa Rosa police said in a statement.
The suspects were between 14 and 18 years old and were wearing masks, police said.
The thefts come amid a recent spate of “smash-and-grab” crime.
In suburban Chicago, 14 people broke into a Louis Vuitton store last week and fled with more than $ 100,000 in handbags and other merchandise.
