2 women injured in home invasion robbery in Woodland Hills

WOODLAND HILLS - At least two women were injured during a violent home invasion robbery today in an upscale neighborhood in Woodland Hills, police said.

The robbery, at 22146 Mulholland Dr. in Woodland Hills, was reported around 2 a.m., said Los Angeles police Sgt. Pablo Monterrosa of the Topanga Station.

Four women were throwing a party at the house when someone knocked on the door. When the door opened, a man armed with a handgun and two women forced their way into the house, said Monterrosa.

At least two of the female residents suffered injuries after reportedly being pistol-whipped by the man, said Monterrosa.

``We located one of the victims at the scene and the second injured woman turned up later at a hospital,'' said Monterrosa.

The invaders were described as black people. ``One of the female robbers wore a red shirt. The other woman wore a black hooded sweatshirt and the male gunman also wore a black, hooded sweatshirt,'' said Monterrosa.

The suspects fled the scene with an unknown amount of money and jewelry, Monterrosa said.

A video crew at the scene reported one of the female victims managed to escape to a neighbor's house who then called police to the scene.

A freelance video crew reported that the target house formerly belonged to actor John Stamos, and is now owned by a record company that was affiliated with record producer/actor Sean Puffy Combs and rapper Wale. But police would not confirm that.
