LAPD reportedly arrests suspect in connection to Magic Johnson's daughter Elisa's home invasion
A suspect in the home robbery involving Magic Johnson’s daughter Elisa has been apprehended. He is reportedly a parolee who is now in custody without bail.
One of the men suspected to be involved in the home invasion which Magic Johnson’s daughter Elisa Johnson fled from was arrested.
The man whose name was not identified is now in police custody without bail. According to reports, he was tracked down through a surveillance video of the area where the invasion occurred.
Elisa and her friends were in a rented home in December when two men broke in. While her friends were held at gunpoint, Elisa was in her bedroom, unaware of what was going on. Upon learning of the break-in, she managed to escape from the back door of the house and secure help from neighbors who called 911. Meanwhile, the suspects stole a Rolex watch, some cash, and electronics before fleeing the scene. No one was harmed from the encounter.
