Reputed gang member sought in robbery, carjacking

Andrew Blankstein (Los Angeles Times) | June 7, 2012

Police were looking for a reputed gang member who allegedly left a carjacking victim in South Los Angeles on Thursday evening after committing a robbery the day before in Culver City.

Edgar Gomez, 22, fled after dumping the vehicle and female victim around 6 p.m near Exposition Park, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. The woman was uninjured.

Gomez was wanted by Culver City police in connection with an early-morning robbery on Wednesday. Gomez and two other suspects robbed three people at gunpoint at La Cienega Boulevard and Smiley Drive, said Lt. Ron Iizuka of the Culver City Police Department.

The other two suspects were later arrested. Culver City officers spotted Gomez on Thursday afternoon, but he jumped into a vehicle near La Brea Boulevard and the 10 Freeway before he could be arrested.

“He must have known he was being followed,” Iizuka told The Times.

Gomez is suspected of leaving the woman and car about five hours later near Martin Luther Jr. King Boulevard and Vermont Avenue, according to the LAPD.
