Arrests in Silver Lake robberies and attacks

I just got back from LAPD Northeast station where we announced two arrests in the cluster of robberies and attacks that recently occurred in Silver Lake. The two suspects are known gang members, age 15 and 16. A search warrant of their homes resulted in the discovery of guns as well as iPods, cell phones, and other items that connected them to three robberies, including two of the recent incidents in Silver Lake (in which one victim was punched and kicked and the other was cut on the forehead with a sharp object).

This investigation is ongoing, but I want to thank the men and women of the LAPD for their work in this case. I know they are continuing their investigation into the other robberies and attacks in the Silver Lake and Echo Park areas and won't rest until we bring the perpetrators to justice.
