Some Of 14 Hostages In Los Angeles Were Assaulted

By  | 

Police say some of the 14 workers held hostage overnight during a robbery at a Los Angeles clothing store were assaulted, and one was stabbed.

Police Lt. Andy Neiman says the stabbed worker was treated for a non-life threatening wound.

He says another worker was sexually assaulted and others were manhandled during the four-hour standoff at a Nordstrom Rack store near Los Angeles International Airport.

At least two robbers are being sought.

The ordeal began around 11 p.m. Thursday and ended around 3 a.m. Friday when a SWAT team entered the store but found no robbers.

Police are also trying to determine whether a car found in neighboring Culver City was the getaway vehicle.
