BEVERLY CREST (CBSLA) — A security guard was distracted by a woman in short shorts before being ambushed by robbers, who got into the multi-million home in Beverly Crest he was guarding by using his gate remote.
The robbery happened at about 1:30 a.m. at a home in the 1200 block of Tower Road. Police say four men and a woman ambushed the guard, who had been in his car.READ MORE: 29-Year-Old Mesa Verde Man Faces Felony Arson Charges
“A female black wearing short shorts and a furry jacket distracted the guard,” Los Angeles police spokeswoman Officer Norma Eisenman said.
The robbers, who were armed with guns, zip tied the guard and robbed him, taking two guns, a knife, a flashlight and his cash. They then took the guard’s remote for the security gate, went inside the home and took property from inside. No one was home at the time.READ MORE: Childcare Crisis: Pandemic Closures Cause Economic Ripple Effect

It’s not the first time the $12 million home has seen police activity this year. Police were called to location back in January, the morning after the Golden Globes Awards, on the report of a sexual assault. No arrests were made at that time, but a naked woman was reported seen running from the home.MORE NEWS: Teenager Struck By Vehicle In Seal Beach
