Two men were each sentenced Monday to 12 years in prison for the brazen armed robbery of a man’s $500,000 watch while he was dining outdoors in Beverly Hills, prosecutors said. 

The suspects wore hoods and one of them put a gun to the head of the watch’s owner as he sat at Il Pastaio restaurant last March, investigators said. A woman was shot in the leg during a struggle over the watch and the gun. She was not seriously hurt.

Malik Lamont Powell, 21, and Khai McGhee, 18, each pleaded guilty in September to three felonies including conspiracy to commit robbery.

The defendants, members of a Los Angeles street gang, were sentenced by U.S. District Judge John F. Walter, who called the crime “outrageous and unacceptable,” according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. 

A third defendant, Marquise Anthony Gardon, pleaded guilty in September to two felonies including robbery. Gardon, 41, is scheduled to be sentenced February 28.

Surveillance video showed the suspects scouting the area around the restaurant before the robbery, according to a court statement by an FBI agent involved in the investigation.

The gun was left at the scene but the robbers fled with the watch, a rose-gold Richard Mille RM 11-03 Flyback Chronograph worth approximately $500,000.
