The valet worker at The Stinking Rose, located on 55 North La Cienaga Boulevard, declined to go on camera, but told CBS2/KCAL9 a customer spat in his face then tried to run him over in a silver SL500 Mercedes.
Police say the driver spit on the valet then acted like he was going to run him over before pulling off from a location in the 200 block of North La Cienaga, just north of Wilshire Boulevard.
Josh Gelle told CBS2/KCAL9 that a few items were missing from the vehicle but the SUV is in good shape.
Josh Gelle and his girlfriend were stunned that the thief was able to take Gelle’s CX-9 Mazda without a ticket.
“Our first reaction,” says Josh Gelle, “was ‘Where’s the hidden camera?’ We’re looking around. You’re kidding.'”
If you’ve ever had second thoughts about handing your keys over to a valet attendant, the Los Angeles City Council says you’re not alone.
