After a series of robberies by three suspects around the North Village area of Westwood Village, UCLA campus police saturated the area with undercover officers eventually witnessing a street robbery in progress. "We caught the suspects with a little bit of luck and a little bit of experience,” UCPD Sergeant Robert De Francesco told the Daily Bruin. Both UCPD and LAPD believe the suspects are responsible for at least 13 robberies in the area since October 1st. Add: Two robbery suspects were arrested today near USC for trespassing.
