The Los Angeles Police Department arrested two juveniles as part of an ongoing investigation into the recent spate of muggings in the Silver Lake area. In a separate incident, two men who claimed to be Gas Company employees committed a home invasion robbery in Windsor Square on Friday. Police are aggressively following leads on that case as well. Councilmember Tom La Bonge encourages all residents of Council District 4 to remain aware of their surroundings when they’re out, and when they’re home, don’t open the door to strangers.
