Scripps News reports:

President Joe Biden was in Los Angeles for a fundraiser event at the Peacock Theater on Saturday evening. The president returned to his Los Angeles hotel shortly before 9 p.m.

The suspect left the scene in a silver car and has not been located, though some of the Secret Service agent’s belongings were recovered.

In an exclusive statement to Scripps News, Anthony Guglielmi, the director of communications for the U.S. Secret Service said, “We are thankful that the employee did not sustain any injuries.”

“A member of the U.S. Secret Service was the victim of an armed robbery in Tustin, California late Saturday when returning from a work assignment. The employee discharged their service weapon during the incident but unknown if the assailants were struck,” Guglielmi said.

Per ABC News:

President Joe Biden was in California over the weekend for a glitzy campaign stop with former President Barack Obama and several high-profile celebrities, including George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Jimmy Kimmel.

Kimmel served as moderator for the discussion between Obama and his former vice president. The event raised a little over $30 million for Biden’s reelection campaign, according to an official.

“Had a great time catching up with a few good friends. Together, we will beat Donald Trump,” Joe Biden’s X account posted.
