The suspects were believed to be driving American-made, late model minivans and SUVs.

The warning comes amid a rise in follow-home robberies in Los Angeles County. A Los Angeles Police Department (洛杉矶警察局) spokesperson told Fox News last week that follow-home robberies seem to bepopping up everywherein the city.

The LAPD announced in mid-November that it is investigating more than 110 抢劫案 involving at least six different street gangs in which the victims were followed home. The LAPD had issued a warning regarding thefollow-home robberiesearlier in November after a series of incidents.

The department later developed aFollow Home Task Force in response to the ongoing crime trend after one such robbery ended in a homicide Nov. 23.
