Eliza Dushku ROBBED By Costumed Thieves At Her Hotel On Halloween
Eliza Dushku was robbed outside her Providence, RI hotel early on Saturday by two men wearing costumes. The actress was taking things from her car shortly before 4 a.m. when she placed her Louis Vuitton bag on the curb, only to have it snatched by a masked man and another thief dressed as Julius Caesar.
The star tweeted about the whole experience, which was made especially scary by the fact that the thieves initially could not be identified — and were staying in Dushku’s hotel. “Was just robbed in front of my hotel a few hrs ago. Cameras caught everything:hotel/police/security weren’t able to do anything,” she tweeted. “Really upset. It’s been a long night. The 2 men are in my hotel currently & ‘nothing can be done.’“
Dushku continued, “They were, of course, wearing Halloween costumes. One of the guys wore a GOLD HEAD TO TOE ‘Ceasar’ outfit. Anyone in RI, ring a bell.? Help. 2 guys, 1 dressed as a GOLDEN GLADIATOR/CEASAR. If anyone saw anything tonite please help me #fans #ricomiccon #RI #providence #GrandLarceny.“
She appealed to the hotel’s Twitter account, asking for help finding and apprehending the thieves. Dushku added, “If you see anyone walk out of hotel w this Duffle bag, it was a gift from @MrsSOsbourne ON her show in ’04. It’s been around the world w me.”
“They’re here. In hotel. Why I can’t sleep. Possibly just right down the hall.Distressing. I want them found,” pleaded Dushku, who finally got resolution and peace of mind later on Saturday morning: “Update:men found in hotel, w/my luggage, apprehended & spending wknd in jail until+. U guys helped this happen. I am VERY grateful. C u soon.”
Definitely not the type of Halloween scare Dushku wanted. Gossip Cop is glad to hear it ended with the bandits’ arrest and the return of the actress’ property.
