I checked the lesson and we have two sentences showing this case showing how you can drop the short pronoun if the sentence doesn't start with the "A + person":
(Le) robaron la moto el otro día a su vecino.
(Les) cantaron una canción a Pedro y Pablo por su despedida.
It is in the block titled "Unnamed but known person"
