Palm Desert police officers arrested three people in connection with a robbery that happened near the intersection of Town Center Way and Fred Waring Drive in Palm Desert, Sheriff’s officials reported Tuesday.
The incident occurred when a 34-year-old pedestrian was approached by three men as he was walking home, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.
The men asked the pedestrian if they could borrow his phone and when he reached to grab it they simulated a weapon and told him to give them all his money, according to Lt. Jason Huskey.
After the incident was reported to police officers, the officers located three individuals in the area who matched the description of the suspects and then proceeded to arrest them, Huskey said.
The 34-year-old victim identified the three suspects as the people who robbed him. Two of the individuals were underage and were transported to a nearby juvenile detention center, but the other individual, 19-year-old Julio Alvarado, was booked into the Riverside County Jail in Indio on burglary charges.
