LAPD Wilshire Division responded to an armed robbery on Larchmont Blvd at First Street on Monday night at approximately 9:15 pm. Evidently a victim on the sidewalk was approached by a suspect with a handgun while a second accomplice waited in a car on the street. The LAPD is still investigating and would not confirm further details by telephone this morning, but twitter account @LAScanner reported last night that a Louis Vuitton wallet was stolen. The suspects are believed to have fled south in a car.
