Assailant on bicycle yanks gold chain off neck of boy, 5
Video images from nearby businesses show that the thief pulled the chain so hard that the boy was dragged along the sidewalk, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The robbery occurred Monday about 3:25 p.m. in the 5300 block of South Main Street. The boy and his family had just finished eating at a restaurant, police said.
The LAPD said the video images show the attacker buying a drink at a store just before the crime. He is described as Latino, about 21 years old, 5-feet-7 with black hair and hazel eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Chris Marsden or Det. Guillermo Medina at (323) 846-6572.
