Last week two young men allegedly walked into an IHOP on Lincoln Boulevard and demanded money at gunpoint before fleeing on foot. What they may have not known was that a security camera focused on the front door clearly caught their faces. Now police are hoping people can recognize the two. The incident happened around 5:25 a.m. on April 13th at the IHOP at 4070 Lincoln Boulevard, which is in the Los Angeles city neighborhood of Del Rey (the unincorporated Marina Del Rey area is across the street). Both are described as 17 or 18-year-olds at 5-feet 8-inches. A video has been put on YouTube.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call Pacific robbery detectives at (310) 482-6396. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) using a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters can also go to, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
