A$AP Rocky's home targeted by armed robbers

Three suspects have stolen $1.5 million in jewelry from the home of rapper A$AP Rocky, after forcing a woman at gunpoint to let them into the residence, according to KTLA.

Liliana Preciado of the Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) Media Relations Division told NBC Los Angeles that three suspects knocked on the door of the house in the 300 block of North Flores Street. The burglars took $1.5 million in jewelry and property, including a safe left on the sidewalk, per the site's account. The gang had apparently targeted A$AP Rocky's home. The woman was a relative of the star. They forced the victim back into the home. The woman answered and the robbers forced their way inside. She didn't know the code for the safe, however. "They attempted to take a safe and were unsuccessful, but they took property".
