Four of the robberies turned violent, and the assaults happened at all hours, even in broad daylight.
Residents say the police should have warned them earlier:
Police believe the suspects, who travel in groups of two or four, could be gang members.
Anyone with information about the robberies and attacks is urged to call the LAPD at (877) LAPD-24-7.
