Darez Diggs controversies

Darez Diggs was allegedly involved in a brutal attack and robbery of a man in an elevator in May 2023.

The video, obtained by TMZ Sports, seems to show a man stepping out of an elevator before he is confronted by Darez Diggs. 

Diggs then stops the elevator doors from closing before two more men walk into the elevator and begin attacking the victim.

They then search through his bags and take items from them, occasionally getting violent against him on two occasions.

The incident happened on May 29 in a downtown Los Angeles apartment complex. The guy is seen being kicked in the face during the altercation as they remove him from the elevator in the video.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, they were called to the location, but by that time the suspects had already left. The orange bag that was taken is thought to have been filled with jewels, including diamonds.

Although no one has been taken into custody as of yet, the inquiry is still open. 

What kind of relationship the other two men have with Darez is unclear. Many have questioned whether Darez was the mastermind of the scheme while the other two men committed the act because it appears that he made little personal contact with the victim.
