I live in this Taft Cottages Garden Grove, CA community and I was trying to sell my iPhone 7 I got for my mom (she liked her old phone more) today at 6pm and I got jacked by 2 black males at the front of the community.
Attached is a video of their car and me talking to them.
It felt a bit sketchy so I recorded the video but still didn’t realize they blocked their license plate until I checked my video footage again.
Buyer told me he was handicapped hence me walking to the car.
A few red flags which I should have back out of but it would just be speculations at that moment.
At the end of the video when I was going to send them the picture text they took off in car with my iPhone 7 and as I’m running after the car I saw the paper fall off the license plate (now realizing it was blocked purposely).
However I was able to see 5 digits of the plate number.
Details of suspect below:
- 2 black males about 25-35 years old
- dark grey Chrysler 300C license plate –XY131 (missing first 2 digits)
- 6 pm on Taft street heading north
- their phone #323-285-3517 (LA area code)
I will be doing a police report tomorrow but hopefully this would be some info to help catch these guys or prevent them from doing to others.
