A$AP Rocky's Beverly Grove home targeted in armed home-invasion robbery

BEVERLY GROVE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Rapper A$AP Rocky's Beverly Grove home was targeted in an armed home-invasion robbery, Eyewitness News has learned.

A female family member, who had been staying at the rapper's home, arrived at the house near Beverly Boulevard and Flores Street shortly before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. A$AP Rocky was not home at the time.

She went inside the house but exited a few minutes later. That's when she was confronted by three suspects - one of them was armed with a handgun.

The suspects forced the woman to get back inside the house and demanded that she open a safe. However, the woman did not have the combination.

The suspects attempted to take the safe with them, but they were unable to carry it beyond the sidewalk - so they just left it there.

The culprits made off with jewelry and other items, totaling approximately $1.5 million. The woman was not hurt.

Investigators said the three suspects fled in a silver SUV. A description of the suspects was not available, because they were wearing masks.

Police do not believe the suspects targeted the rapper, and that the robbers are just looking for wealthy properties. Authorities also said there is no indication that this incident was connected to any other robberies or burglaries.

Authorities are looking into possible surveillance footage to help them with the investigation, which is being handled by the Los Angeles Police Department.
