Lucian Tudor, the owner of La Boheme WeHo restaurant, 8400 Santa Monica Blvd, has decided to close the restaurant this evening in order to attend the regular West Hollywood City Council Meeting scheduled for tonight starting at 6pm. He will be taking his entire staff to speak during public comment on public safety.
“After the gun robbery last month at La Boheme we have been vandalized five times,” reads an email from a representative at La Boheme. “The city is getting extremely unsafe, staff are afraid to come to work and we need the city’s help.”
The restaurant made national headlines, on April 25, 2023, after camera footage captured an armed robbery where one of the one of the suspects held an assault rifle. Three victims were robbed. One of the victims was struck in the face with a handgun by the suspects. A third victim walking on the sidewalk was also robbed at gunpoint. The suspects fled the area in a stolen, silver Dodge Charger, which was being driven by a male juvenile.
On May 3, 2023. the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD) announced that the suspects had been arrested in the City of Beverly Hills. LASD released a special bulletin with mug shots of two of the four suspects involved in the armed robbery (two of the suspects are juveniles). LASD also released the names of Keymaurie Clark, 26, Briana Threets, 26, and information that a 15-year-old male juvenile, and a 15-year-old female juvenile were also arrested.
On April 10, 2023 La Boheme was vandalised with anti semitic and Satanic marking that appeared on the side wall of La Boheme restaurant. West Hollywood Health and Human Resources Commissioner Jimmy Palmieri discovered the vandalism in the early morning hours while walking his dog Luna.
