We heard this go down over the scanner Tuesday afternoon. It’s an interesting story especially when paired with the tale of a homicide in Century City.
Here’s some of the Rosemead tale:
ROSEMEAD – A man was stabbed and robbed of a briefcase full of diamond engagement rings Tuesday, authorities said.
The crime was reported about 5:20 p.m. in the 3600 block of Rosemead Boulevard, Los Angles County sheriff’s Lt. Mike O’Shea said.
A man was approached by three Latino men wearing bandanas over their faces and dark hooded sweat shirts, O’Shea said.
One of the suspects pulled a knife and stabbed the victim in his left arm and the robbers grabbed his briefcase, which was filled with diamond engagement rings, O’Shea said.
The victim is believed to be either a jewelry dealer or maker who stopped for dinner on his way to meet clients, he added.
Then there’s this story from Century City:
CENTURY CITY, Calif. (KABC) — Police continue to hunt for a man who fatally stabbed a woman inside a Century City parking garage.
