Most of the victims are high-end restaurants and nightclubs on Hollywood and Wilshire Boulevard, as well as the Jewelery District and Melrose Avenue in downtown Los Angeles, which is home to many trendy shops.

Earlier this month, the LAPD issued a warning for “follow-home” robberies following a series of incidents.

“The target of these burglars is expensive watches, including necklaces and expensive purses,” the alert said. “The victims are targeted based on the type of vehicle they are driving.”

The trend is similar to a series of “knock-knock” thefts two years ago in which suspects knock on doors of homes to determine if someone is inside, officials said. If the homes are empty, they go inside the balcony or through the back or side door and deactivate any security alarms and rob the residence for weapons, money and other high value items.

Officers said many of the suspects got in and out of the home within five minutes.

In September, LAPD increased patrols in the area around Melrose Avenue after an increase in armed robberies and other violent incidents. In an incident captured in the video, a pair of gunmen approached diners at a sidewalk cafe and robbed their shopping bags.
