New York social media influencer robbed in Hollywood Hills home invasion
The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating a home burglary that resulted in the theft of $1 million worth of property from a Hollywood Hills home early Wednesday.
It happened around 3:30 a.m. at a house in the 3500 block of Multiview Drive.
According to police, armed robbers entered the house and woke the two people sleeping inside by putting a gun to their faces and demanding money.
One of the people inside was whipped with a gun and suffered minor injuries, police said.
The thieves then ransacked the house and then fled with an undisclosed amount of jewelry and other valuables.
Victims told police that the total value of the stolen items could reach $1 million.
At the moment, no suspicious description is available.
A victim told KTLA that he lives in New York, is a social media influencer, and rents the house through AirBnB. He said he may have left the back door open and that’s how the thieves may have entered.
Nour Atta, who calls himself “Nour Trades”, said a gun was pointed at his face.
“I’m an influencer and I know what goes with it,” Atta said. “Maybe if they noticed me, they got into it and went about their business, or it could have been something random. You never know these days.
Atta claims to have stolen several high-end watches and jewelry.
A neighbor who only wanted to be identified as “Alex,” said influencers who rent homes in upscale neighborhoods attract negative attention.
He contacted the city to complain about the Airbnb rental and “nobody cared”.
“It puts my family at risk, it puts my neighbors at risk, everyone is very upset,” Alex told KTLA.
The incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information should contact the elite LAPD Robbery and Homicide Division at 213-486-6840.
