My neighbor was robbed night before last while dining outside at Vermont Restaurant. Apparently, she was temporarily distracted from watching her bag by a ponytailed female, while two thuggish male types made off with her bag.
Now, if you know Vermont, or even that part of Los Feliz, you know that this is seriously fucked up. But what’s more disturbing is that the police told her this group has been on the prowl for some time now. Unfortunately, according to the proprietor of Vermont, nobody seems to have passed that information on to business owners in the neighborhood.
So I am. If you’re eating outside on Vermont or Hillhurst, keep your wits about you and your belongings in plain sight. I’ll be inside, because I am a chicken.
