Police Pursuit of Armed Robbery Suspects Ends in Watts

Police were pursuing what initial reports described as armed robbery suspects in the South LA area on Monday evening at approximately 7:10 p.m.

Newschopper4 Bravo and Gil Leyvas were overhead as the vehicle exited the 105 Freeway.

The pursuit concluded when the car stopped in Watts at a crowded housing complex. Officers immediately took one of the two suspects into custody, while the other suspect ran long enough to take his shirt off and try to blend into the crowd.

The switch of clothing didn't work, though, as LAPD immediately identified the suspect and arrested the man.

The police pursuit concluded at approximately 7:16 p.m.
