    Three Suspects Attack a Man for His Rolex Watch in Botched Robbery Attempt

    surveillance video shared on Instagram shows a man getting jumped by three suspects in an attempt to steal his Rolex watch. The video shows the man get kicked in the head and punched numerous times. He was allegedly pistol-whipped while refusing to comply with his attackers. He was walking a small dog.

    According to the reports, the victim is a the owner of a THE LAB Athletic Club, which is listed in the City of Los Angeles, but very near the West Hollywood city limits on The Sunset Strip. He is recovering after his attack with bruises to his head.

    ABC7 Eyewitness News reports the bold daytime attack occurred on Tuesday afternoon in the 8300 block of Sunset Boulevard. Surveillance footage captured three individuals approaching the man as he was walking his dog, a Maltipoo named Hercules.

    It appears at least one of the suspects was armed with a firearm. They proceeded to assault the victim as he retreated and eventually curled up on the ground. Despite the violent onslaught, the man refused to surrender his Rolex.

    Speaking to Eyewitness News, the victim recounted how it was his instinct to resist, even as the assailants threatened him, shouting: “Take it off, take it off, we’re gonna shoot you, we’re gonna shoot you.”

    The video shows the victim running inside the building, leaving Hercules behind.

    There is no sound in the video, but it appears a passerby ran away after hearing the screams.

    The suspects fled the scene without the watch, making their getaway in a vehicle.

    According to ABC7, approximately an hour later, a similar robbery was reported nearby near Third Street and Cochran Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). In that incident, four individuals in a black Cadillac allegedly robbed a man of his watch on the street, with at least one brandishing a semiautomatic handgun. Police have not confirmed whether these suspects were linked to the attempted Rolex robbery.

    As of now, the suspects involved in both incidents remain at large.
