A woman sitting in her car in her garage last night in Manhattan Beach was robbed at gunpoint by a man and woman who approached her, demanding her money. The woman gave them her cellphone and purse.

The incident happened around 9:50 p.m. Thursday in the 3100 block of Manhattan Ave., said the Manhattan Beach Police Department Friday.

Police were able to determine the location of the victim's cell phone using tracking software.

Police also saw a car heading east on Rosecrans Avenue with two people inside who matched the descriptions of the robbers. 

When officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver led police on a low-speed chase into Hawthorne. Pursuing officers were able to disable the vehicle using the Pursuit Intervention Technique.

Police arrested three individuals and recovered the victim's property and a black semi-automatic replica BB-gun from inside the vehicle the suspects were traveling in.

The man has been identified as a 17-year-old from Hawthorne, and the women are Faily Chavez, 19, Los Angeles, and Sharhonda Cerise Tyler, 24, San Pedro.

Manhattan Beach police are asking anyone who has been the victim of a similar crime or has seen any of the arrested individuals in the area are asked to call the department's Watch Commander at (310) 802-5170.

Quick, someone call Al Sharpton, LaRaza, and all of the other race baiters. This is clearly yet another case of profiling (lol)!

I DON'T KNOW IF WE SHOULD PULL OUT THE RACE CARD AND START TELLING JOKES, BUT THIS DOES SIGNAL A LARGE PROBLEM. SOMEBODY HAS BEEN TELLING ALL THREE OF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR IS OK. I BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN SEVERAL PEOPLE. "OK FORGET ABOUT LEARNING & WORKING HARD. DON'T WORRY ABOUT LAYING A FOUNDATION FOR YOUR FAMILY. JUST FIND WAYS TO GET WHAT YOU WANT WITHOUT WORKING FOR IT"!! NOW YOU CAN CALL AL! TELL HIM YOU HAVE ANOTHER GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE THAT WILL GET OUT OF JAIL AND LOOK FOR WAYS TO GET WHAT THEY WANT BEFORE THEY RETURN TO JAIL..
