Eliza Dushku Robbed

Duskhu arrived in Providence, R.I., on Friday and was removing her belongings from her vehicle when she put her purse down for a moment. In that moment, a man, who was passing by with another man, snatched up the purse and made off with it.

"Apparently she put her pocketbook down while she was getting other things out of her car and another guest of the hotel picked it up," police told E! News. "The police looked at surveillance tape and were able to identify the suspect and a companion."

During the night of the incident, Dushku was tweeting her followers about what was going on. "Was just robbed in front of my hotel a few hrs ago," she wrote. "Cameras caught everything: Hotel/police/security weren't able to do anything. #Ricomiccon"

She added, "Really upset. It's been a long night. The 2 men are in my hotel currently & ‘notthin can be done.' 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."

Later on, after police had apprehended the men who'd robbed her, she posted an update. "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," she tweeted. "Night. Thx all for your love concern &care. You're the best. Except you, Gold Caesar guy & your boyfriend/accomplice."

The bag Dushku was missing was a $4,000 Louis Vuitton travel bag that was gifted to the actress when she appeared on Sharon Osbourne's show a while back.
Dushku had been in Rhode Island for Rhode Island Comic Con.
