On April 24 at approximately 11:10 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the 1800 block of 16th Street in response to vandalism that had just occurred.

The reporting party stated that two males and one female driving in a silver car pulled up to the rear of his house, began yelling profanities at a rival gang member and proceeded to use a hammer to smash the rear window of his mother’s car.

The witness stated that upon seeing what was going on, he approached the suspects and told them that this was not the car of the person they were looking for. After being confronted, the suspects entered the car and drove away. The witness was able to provide a license plate number that was similar to the suspects’ car and he also stated that he recognized the female suspect from school.

Officers on patrol spotted a car matching the description of the suspects’ car traveling in the 1600 block of Lincoln Boulevard, at which point officers began to follow the vehicle. The suspects were later apprehended in the 200 block of Pacific Coast Hwy.

Arrested for vandalism and a gang enhancement were two juvenile suspects and Javier Martinez, 25, of Inglewood. Bail was set at $60,000.
