Jeff Lewis recalls terrifying robbery which occurred in his LA neighborhood


Jeff Lewis opened up about the scene in his neighborhood after a woman was allegedly robbed down the street from his Los Angeles residence in broad daylight. 

Lewis’ neighbor, a 71-year-old woman in the Beverly Grove area, was zip tied, robbed and pistol whipped at her home on Wednesday afternoon, Fox 11 reports, citing authorities.

The Bravo star, 52, recalled being at home at the time of the invasion and revealed why he refused to hand over surveillance footage from his backyard over fears detectives would see him naked in the videos.

‘All of a sudden, police cars, helicopters, everything’: Jeff Lewis has opened up about the terrifying home invasion which occurred across the street from his Los Angeles residence in broad daylight

‘The crazy part is, we were home at the time. We were at the office. And all of a sudden, police cars, helicopters, everything,’ Jeff said on his SiriusXM show, Jeff Lewis Live, on Thursday.

‘What I don’t understand — and she’s a nice lady, I’ve talked to her several times — maybe I’ve seen her with a little gold Rolex on her or whatever, but I was wondering why they targeted them?

‘Because there are a lot of beautiful houses in [my] neighborhood, but that house is kind of modest. So I was kind of like, “Why do they target them?” But they do have five expensive cars.’

However, when authorities asked him to turn over surveillance footage from his backyard to gleam more information about the robbery, Jeff refused to do so.

The Flipping Out star revealed he doesn’t ‘always wear clothes’ in the backyard and likes to go into the pool and ‘sex it up’ when his five-year-old daughter Monroe is not at home.  

‘Our house is almost right across the street, so they were going and knocking on all the doors and they wanted to see our cameras… I looked at our camera and I can’t see the street past the wall and the hedges and the gates, so I’m like, this is not going to do them any sort of service because they can’t see the house for the street,’ he said.

‘But they came to the house like, three times. They said, “Look, we want to look at this footage in case there’s any shadows or anything like that.”‘

He later said he told authorities: ‘I said, “My AV cabinet is downstairs and I kind of don’t want you going through it. Because, to be honest with you, one of these cameras faces the backyard and I don’t always wear clothes back there.” 

‘Like, if Monroe’s not home, we might go in the pool and sex it up. Sometimes I’m so drunk, I don’t remember what happens… There could be nine people for all I know,’ he admitted. ‘So I said, “You know, I just worry about giving the DVR to the detective. I’m on TV.'”

‘So I did not surrender the DVR… I did not cooperate,’ he concluded.

He said his neighbor was now ‘just bruised, banged up a little bit’ and, according to Lewis, she did not incur any broken bones or get stitches.

Dillon Anthony Klincke has been named as a suspect and has since been arrested, according to People, citing the LAPD.

According to a statement from the LAPD: ‘On August 17, 2022, around 2:26 p.m., a lone male suspect entered a residence located in the 6600 block of West 5th Street.

‘Once inside the location the suspect pistol whipped the victim and demanded access to a safe that contained a large amount of expensive jewelry. The suspect gained access to the safe, removed the jewelry and fled the location with the victim’s property.

‘The victim sustained bruises and lacerations as a result of being struck by the suspect. She was treated by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics and released at scene.’

An investigation into the matter is in its early stages.
