INCIDENT #: 17-118540

On 10-6-17 two males wearing masks chased down and robbed an individual who was walking to work. Patrol Officers responded and a report was taken. An area check for the suspects was unsuccessful at that time. On 10-12-17 patrol officers responded to an anonymous tip of one of the suspects being in the area of 800 W. Holt. The suspect was detained and arrested by patrol and after some excellent follow up investigation by the detective bureau the case was recently filed with the District Attorney’s office.

Today Members of the San Gabriel Valley East AB109 Task Force were making an unrelated arrest in the same area of 870 W. Holt. Another caller advised the second of the robbery suspects was seen in the area. The task force members conducted an area check and located the second suspect who was positively identified and arrested for robbery. Great work by all involved.
