I would like a description as well. I'm always out with my two sons.

Usually if there is a description of the suspects, CCPD forwards it to us. It may well have been that they simply didn't get a good look at them

wow!!! as a culver city resident all my life this was unheard of. I beleive good citizens should pack thier own heat, obviously gun laws are against us and not the criminals, I am sure these subjects are repeat offenders that should just be layed to rest!!. Do we have to wait until a good citizen gets hurt?

What is going on here? What is happening to our sleepy little town? Hey Police! Please get out there and be vigilant! Residents...keep your eyes peeled and call the police.

Seriously CCPD, we need more policy presence in our neighborhoods, not just on the main drags!!! I watch my street like a hawk, when I do call because I see kids spraying cars with a fire extiguisher, the cops come, find the kids and let them go?? I love Culver City, but we are going backward to the crime infested days instead of going forward. The police have a description, if you are robbed an gunpoint, you DON'T forget the face!! Step it up CCPD, our quiet little hamlet has a rash of new gang activity and a bunch of slum lurking our streets!
