An employee of the US Secret Service, responsible for protecting the President, Vice President, their families, and residences, was robbed at gunpoint in Los Angeles on his way home from work.

The incident took place while President Joe Biden was in the city attending a fundraiser with former President Barack Obama. However, sources clarify that the security guard was off-duty during the robbery.

The victim fired shots from his service weapon, but the assailant still managed to steal the security officer's bag and flee. Police are now searching for a silver Infiniti car spotted leaving the scene of the crime.
