Eliza Dushku: I Was Robbed On Halloween By Costumed Thieves

Actress Eliza Dushku Robbed On Halloween

tActress Eliza Dushku, known for roles in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel, was reportedly robbed while staying at the Omni for Comic Con in Providence, Rhode Island.

As she was unloading luggage from her vehicle late Friday night, Dushku tweeted that two costumed men, who were also staying at the Omni, stole her Louis Vitton bag, valued at over $1,700, from the curb next to her. The bag, the star said, was a gift to her from Sharon Osbourne after visiting Osbourne’s show in 2004.

“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”, Dushku said.

Eliza tweeted about the incident, saying that the one of the thieves was dressed as Caesar and the other was wearing a mask.

Eliza tweeted a photo of herself to prove that it was indeed her, following a number of responses from followers wondering if her profile had been hacked. Dushku pleaded with the hotel to assist her, saying “these 2 men are guests here in the building & on your cameras robbing me. Help me find them & apprehend.” Following hours of investigating, Eliza tweeted early Saturday morning that the two men had finally been apprehended and her stolen bag had been returned. Dushku stated that the men were set to spend the weekend in jail following the incident.

Local Providence, Rhode Island, news reported that only one arrest was initially made and that there was a warrant out for the arrest of the second culprit. Jamie Lange, a 30 year-old man from Boca Raton, Florida, was charged with larceny. A warrant is out for the arrest of Scott Pryor, Lange’s roommate, in the theft of Eliza’s luggage.

Eliza’s trip to Providence for the convention comes not long after the actress moved back to her hometown of Boston, Massachusetts, following a split from NBA star Rick Fox. The New England native has lent her talents to a number of superhero and action cartoons in the years since her stint on Buffy, and has also contributed her voice to many notable video games. Dushku currently stars in the Disney show Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
