9 Teens Charged With Robbing Hollywood Pedestrians

Posted: Updated:
Hollywood, CA -

(FOX 11 / AP) Nine teens are facing robbery charges after they allegedly took cell phones, a wallet and a skateboard from people walking on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, said Tuesday all nine have pleaded not guilty in the July 13 incident at the busy intersection of Hollywood and Highland.

Police believe the so-called "bash mob" was organized through social media.

Bash mobs are like a flash mob but instead of dancing a choreographed number in public places, a bash mob converges to steal and vandalize.

Three girls and two boys, all 16, and four 15-year-old boys were charged.

Police have been trying to stay one step ahead of such mobs, and have recently issued warnings ahead of possible bash mobs.
