WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – A woman armed with a gun and a machete walked inside the West Hollywood branch of the DASH Store on Thursday, September 21.
No one was hurt during the incident, but the incident that happened before lunchtime had shaken DASH Store staff. Initially, the woman pointed a revolver gun to the person behind the counter after knocking out a few merchandise. She then walked away from the scene. The staff called 911 to report the incident.
According to the employees, the woman was ranting about Cuba needing to be freed. She was ranting about staying away from Cuba. About a little before 2 pm, the Caucasian woman went back to the store, stuck a machete at the store door, shouted “Kardashians will be persecuted,” then rode a cab to escape.
Law enforcers ruled out robbery and regarded the suspect as “mentally disturbed.” None of the Kardashian sisters were at the store when the incident happened.
The famous Kardashian sisters – Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe – are yet to release an official statement regarding the attack. They have been known in the industry for their crazy lifestyle, but have always been followed through their reality TV show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” that debuted in 2007.
The Armenian-American family has been branching out different retail ventures, focusing much on fashion and styling.
This was not the first time an attacker went to the Kardashians’ boutique. Last year, a man threw a rag in flames at the window of the store. There were no updates published about the arsonist’s details, but a witness stepped in to help the detectives fill in the blanks.
Until now, the woman has not been held in custody. The police officers are now taking statements from the employees and the witnesses near the DASH Store when the incident happened.
