Police in Beverly Hills nabbed a shoplifting suspect who “used force to escape” after he was confronted by employees at an undetermined business Friday morning.

It happened on the 300 block of North Beverly Drive in an area with several high-end stores and shopping centers.

Lieutenant Orth of the Beverly Hills Police Department said officers responded for a report of a shoplifter who managed to get away by force after he was confronted. He then fled the location on foot where he was apprehended a short distance away.

Video from Sky5 showed a heavy police presence in the downtown corridor, although it was unclear exactly where the robbery took place.

Police said the suspect was taken into custody by police without incident. That person’s identity has not been disclosed.

The Police Department added that officers would remain on scene for a prolonged period as part of the investigation, but there was no active threat to the public.
