West Coast rapper Yukmouth has broken his silence on the alleged robbery that took place earlier this week.
According to Yuk, the Los Angeles police department are trying to bust Suge Knight for the crime.
"LA police have been after Suge Knight for years and are lying about me to try to get him," he said in an interview. "If Suge was caught jaywalking they would lock him up. I never filed a police report and I never pressed any charges. Me and Suge have always been cool - I wouldn't have had a meeting with him if I thought there was some sort of problem. The situation happened with some other people that didn't have anything to do with Suge, probably because they saw me shining. I've spoken to Suge after the incident and we're good. When the incident happened in the grocery store parking lot, other people called the police and filed reports. The LA police have been calling me trying to have me come in and cooperate, but it's not happening." (Vlad TV)
Reports earlier this week suggested Knight was being sought by police.
Detective Jeff Briscoe says 35-year-old Jerold Ellis, who uses the name Yukmouth, reported he was talking to Knight on Monday night in a Woodland Hills supermarket parking lot about a debt that another rapper allegedly owes Knight. Yukmouth filed a police report saying 10 other men arrived, knocked him down and took his watch, medallion and other jewelry worth $92,000. He wasn't badly hurt and declined medical treatment. Briscoe says Ellis identified Knight as a suspect but later recanted. However, the stolen items haven't been recovered and the investigation continues. (Associated Press)
Further reports suggested the incident took place Monday (March 22) night in California.
The former chief of Death Row Records (and former prison inmate) reportedly attacked Yukmouth with 10 members of his entourage, taking $92,000 worth of jewelry at a Ralph's supermarket in the San Fernando Valley around 10:00pm on Monday. (Gossip Cop)
Members of Knight's entourage are also hnder suspicion.
Sources say Suge and his entourage are suspects and cops want to question them. We're also told there's a previous misdemeanor warrant out for Suge's arrest -- which makes it unlikely he'll visit the police department. (TMZ)
