Robbers attacked a security guard Wednesday night and stole designer handbags worth an estimated $25,000 from the Nordstrom store at a mall in the Canoga Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

It was the latest in a series of robberies in the Bay Area and Los Angeles that prompted Governor Gavin Newsom to order more CHP patrols.

The robbers ran through a door and took “several expensive purses,” Los Angeles deputy chief of police Alan Hamilton told ABC7.

A group of at least five men, one of whom was wearing an orange wig, entered the store at about 7 p.m., stole the purses, exited the store and jumped into a newer model gray Ford Mustang that drove away from the scene, according to ABC7 and KCAL9.

The guard was sprayed with a corrosive chemical and taken to a hospital for treatment, although more details were not immediately available.
