It happened on Monday, October 3, 2022, at about 11:20 p.m., in the area of Nolina Drive and Bentwood Street.
Sheriff’s officials said as the victim picked up his fishing gear and began walking to his car, three unknown Hispanic male suspects approached him.
“One suspect was armed with a gun, and another armed with a knife. The victim was ordered to the ground as the suspects took personal property and threatened to kill him. The suspects then fled in the victim’s vehicle,” stated a sheriff’s news release.
The victim was able to call 911 and shortly after, responding deputies located the victim’s abandoned vehicle in the area of First Avenue and Sage Street. Additional property was found to be missing from the victim’s vehicle. The victim did not receive any injuries during the incident.
