Attempted robbery at Sprouts at the Shops at Rossmoor

According to sources, unknown subjects attempted to rob Sprouts at the Shops at Rossmoor. They fled as the police arrived and headed north on Seal Beach Blvd. While fleeing, they drove around the neighborhood west of Los Alamitos Blvd.

They pulled into the Los Alamitos Community Center parking lot, where one of the subjects, a woman, was arrested with the car they used. A second person took off on foot and carjacked a second vehicle. This subject is still being sought.
