Two brazen thieves were caught on surveillance video cornering a mother and her baby outside their gated Los Angeles home — before stealing a diaper bag and cooler.
Police said the terrifying ordeal unfolded when the woman returned to her Hancock Park home last Sunday afternoon after she went out for a walk with her child.
The surveillance video released by cops shows the woman waiting for the electric gates to open outside the home before she started pushing her baby’s stroller up the driveway.
At the same time, the two suspects can be seen getting out of a car parked across the street and walking towards her.
They initially walked passed the woman’s open gate but quickly turned and approached her as she was pulling her baby stroller up the home’s front steps.
The two suspects then cornered her in the driveway and the woman could be seen taking off the diaper bag she was wearing on her back.
Police said the woman, fearing for her safety, gave them the bag and let them take a cooler that was attached to the stroller.
As the men fled towards their car, the woman could be seen cradling her baby and reaching for her phone to call 911, police said.
Cops said the two men were black, aged between 20-29 years and were both wearing face masks.
One of the men was wearing a black hoodie, red sweat pants and white shoes, while the other had on a gray hoodie, black sweat pants and black shoes.
