When the victim refused, the males began to assault him. During the assault, the victim was able to throw his keys away from him. The males ceased their assault, took the victim’s keys, and stole his 2009 Lincoln MKX.
Approximately 90 minutes later, police officers from the Los Angeles Police Department, Hollywood Station, attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the victim’s vehicle.
The vehicle initially failed to yield but stopped a short distance later. Several males fled from the vehicle. Two of the three suspects were apprehended a short time later.

Their names are unknown at this time.
UPDATE: “The two males who were arrested are confirmed as juveniles and will be transported to Sylmar shortly,” said Lt. Mark Hershey of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
