Armed Men Tie Up a Security Guard Apparently Distracted by Woman in Fishnet Stockings Outside Mansion

The guard told police that a woman in fishnet stockings approached him before four armed men ordered him to open the security gate, allowing them into the mansion

A woman in fishnet stockings and four men carried out an overnight heist Monday at a sprawling hillside mansion on Los Angeles' Westside. 

The security guard was on patrol outside the Beverly Crest home when he was held at gunpoint early Monday. He told investigators that he was initially approached outside the home by a woman wearing short-shorts, fishnet stockings and a jacket with fur.

Four armed men then appeared, took his gun and a remote that controls the security gate, the guard told police. The woman was likely trying to distract the guard, allowing the men to approach the property, police said.

It was not immediately clear what was taken from the home, which was not occupied at the time. The individuals left in a minivan with paper plates, police said.

The incident in the 1200 block of Tower Road occurred around 1 a.m.
