Kardashians' DASH Store Employee Held at Gunpoint, Police Looking for Suspect


A crazed woman entered into the famous family's fashion boutique in West Hollywood on Thursday and pointed a gun at an employee, before she started ranting about Cuba.
A scary incident has unfolded at the Kardashians' DASH store in West Hollywood. On Thursday, September 21, a woman entered into the famous family's fashion boutique at 8420 Melrose Avenue and pointed a gun at the cashier, according to a new report from TMZ.

Law enforcement sources reveal to the news outlet that the crazed woman showed up at the store at 11:19 A.M., and pointed a revolver at an employee. The woman allegedly began ranting about Cuba and referencing phrases such as "Free Cuba" and "Stay away from Cuba," before throwing items off a shelf, then left.

Police arrived on scene soon after the woman left. But she returned to the scene nearly two hours later and started yelling about Cuba again, saying, "Don't mess with the Castro family." She wielded a 14-inch machete at reporters and then wedged the weapon in the door of the store, before she jumped into a taxi and left, witnesses told CBS.

Cops are "actively looking for the suspect," who was seen wearing a bandana and dressed in a sweater emblazoned with several skulls. Investigators were reviewing security video, according to Sheriff's Sgt. Frank Diana of the West Hollywood Station.



It was not an attempted robbery as there's no money or merchandise taken during the assault. The employee, who works as a cashier, appears to be unharmed. TMZ confirmed that no one from the Kardashian family was at the store at the time the scary incident happened.



According to a nearby worker, who did not want to be identified, the store founded in 2006 is often vandalized with trash, though she didn't remember another time when someone had made threats with a gun. Last year, Los Angeles County officers investigated after someone who threw a flaming object through a window at the store.
