Man Robbed of Cell Phone Saturday Morning

Hermosa Beach police officials say they are looking for three men who threatened and hit the victim near Valley Drive.

A man walking through Clark Stadium in the 800 block of Valley Drive around 2:30 a.m. Saturday was robbed of his Android cell phone by three men who verbally threatened and hit him, according to the Hermosa Beach Police Department.

During the contact between the four men, the victim dropped his cell phone which was recovered by one of the suspects, said Detective Mick Gaglia. A suspect then asked the victim if he had any money and offered to sell the phone back to him.

The victim told the threesome he did not have any money. The suspects then fled the area, according to HBPD. The victim then went home and contacted HBPD several hours later for a report.

The stolen property is an HTC Android X-1 cell phone with a red case and diamond stickers.

Police are looking for two male Hispanics and a white male believed to each be 20-25 years old. One Hispanic suspect is described as 5'10", 140 pounds, with short dark hair, blue shorts and shirt. The other is 5'6", 140 pounds, with short dark hair a tank top shirt and shorts. The male white is described as 5'8", 140-150 pounds, with blond hair and a white shirt. 

Anyone with any information regarding the robbery is urged to contact Detective Michael Frilot at (310) 318-0332 or by email at mfrilot@hermosapolice.org.

Anarchy Park, as its known in the neighborhood, strikes again! Nothing is enforced there. The city just installed seven new signs informing us of what not to do,no dogs off leash, alcohol, litter,golf! and the big one, and the reason for the new signage, at taxpayer expense of course, " Smoke free zone." Maybe they should have put " robbery free zone." Rules without enforcement are meaningless, it's nothing but grandstanding. This city needs to get it's priorities in order, what we have is the end result of turning Pier plaza into the embarrassment that it is, I'm with you Matt, vigilantism, lets roll.

A lot is not enforced in this city. Skateboarding and bicycling is not allowed per ordinance 1926a yet they occur daily everywhere on our sidewalks. There's many a time when I've almost been hit by skateboarders and bicyclists. I've seen police drive by such individuals, and just keep driving.

The street lights along the walkway in Clark Stadium were turned off all weekend. This is the city's response to a mugging the weekend before. The batting cages however were on all night, also, the" smoke free zone" signs don't seem to be working, maybe because no one can read them with the lights off. Inept, incompetent, corrupt, mismanaged and just plain stupid.
