LOS ANGELES (AP) - A police spokesman in Los Angeles says SWAT officers have entered a Nordstrom Rack clothing store where at least one woman was believed kept hostage during an armed robbery.
Fourteen people who had been inside the store at the Promenade at Howard Hughes Center in Westchester are safe.
City News Service says the robbery was reported just after 11 p.m. Thursday. The initial call indicated that a female hostage may have been taken, a desk officer at the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Station said. No other information was immediately available.
TV news footage from the scene shows SWAT trucks on hand surrounding the outdoor shopping center and movie theater. Movie goers told news outlets they were held in lockdown in the theaters because of the robbery and then evacuated.
