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.
