Couple Robbed of Jewels Outside Home After Being Followed from Jewelry Store December 28, 2023 (1 comment)


Fullerton, CA—A couple was followed from a jewelry store for about 16 miles before being robbed of their family heirlooms in the driveway of their house, NBC News reports.

Dr. Vijay Wali and his wife, Dr. Jyotika Wali, had pulled into their driveway on Friday night when two men attacked, one pouncing on each of them, the couple reportedly said. They had just visited a jewelry store 16 miles away in Cerritos to have various family jewels polished.

As Jyotika was about to go into the house and Vijay was unloading the trunk, a man ran right at him, he reportedly said.

“I started screaming, ‘Jyotika, Jyotika, Jyotika, lock the door, lock the door, lock the door,’” Vijay Wali said in an interview with NBC News Tuesday night.

The man punched Vijay Wali in the head and threw him on the ground, he reportedly said. When his wife returned to help, the other thief attacked her, the couple reportedly said.

Jyotika Wali said: “I was immediately attacked by another man, and my purse was taken, and I saw my husband had been assaulted, and I screamed for help. My daughter was inside the house and called 911. But it was already over before you could understand what had happened,” according to the news report.

The men got away in two cars, a gray or silver Nissan Altima and a black Honda Odyssey, driven by two other men, Priyanka Wali reportedly said.

Fullerton Police told the news network that they are working on a home invasion robbery.
