Community: **Van Nuys Senior Lead Officers/LAPD** has an important message for you! **Possible Child Annoying Suspect**.

Hi Bel-Air Association,

**Van Nuys Senior Lead Officers/LAPD** has an important message for the community!

**A possible child annoying suspect was seen today, at approximately 1:15 p.m. in the area of Valley Vista Boulevard and Camino De La Cumbre. This possible suspect was seen in a Black late model BMW SUV with tinted windows. He is described as a male, Hispanic with dark skin, 30-40 years of age with a significant scar along the left side of his face, running down to his chin. He was wearing a cowboy hat with a folded-down front brim, and had a thin moustache. This possible suspect followed the youth and there was no physical or verbal contact with the young victim, who fled quickly to his residence. This appears to be an isolated incident as there are no other reports in the area. Please remember to always have your children walk with company and if they feel threatened, to run towards a public venue where there are people to assist them. **.

Coyote Spotted: near Bel-Air Road & Bel-Air Court

Please see below a note from a Bel-Air neighbor:

Around 2:30 pm Monday (4/9), a medium-to-large sized, healthy coyote was spotted in a resident's backyard. The yard has a 6ft high fence. There were no animals/pets in the yard.
The coyote was strolling through the flower garden, but never saw the resident as he was looking down at it from one of their windows.

It then took off down the hill.

Hi Bel-Air Association,

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect believed to have committed 12 robberies throughout Los Angeles County.

The suspect is described as a male Black in his 30's, 600-602 tall, 225-250 pounds, salt and pepper hair, wearing a ball cap and armed with a semi automatic pistol.

Early in the series the suspect wore a green reflective safety vest during the robberies.

The most recent robbery occurred on March 18, 2012 at a CVS store in the city of Lomita. The suspect was armed with a handgun during each robbery and should be considered armed and dangerous

Detectives are releasing surveillance photos of the suspect in hopes that someone will recognize him and come forward before he strikes again.

“This is one of the most active armed robbers in Los Angeles County this year,” commented Lieutenant Kent Wegener of the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Detail. “We are hoping that the public will help us identify him before his violence escalates.”

Anyone with information about these incidents is encouraged to contact Detectives Rich Alvarado or Nick Cannis at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Detail at 562-946-7893.
