The police are in search of the three suspects that appear in the video

Authorities are looking for three suspects who stole the bags of two women outside a condominium building in West Hollywood.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. Sunday outside a condominium complex, located on Kings Road between Santa Monica Boulevard and Romaine Street.

The security images showed two women who apparently had no relationship with each other, walking towards Santa Monica Boulevard to the supermarket Gelson. Three men suddenly appear as they violently grab a woman's purse and throw it on the floor. The men robbed the second woman before running off the scene.

A resident who has lived in the area for more than two decades said that the incident does not surprise him and that he has noticed how violence has increased in the last year.

The West Hollywoo Sheriff station said there has been no official increase in crime in the area.

Seven armed robberies have been reported in the area in the last 30 days.

The police continue the investigation.
