Officers responded to the Hilton Hotel at 10:29 a.m. on reports of a robbery. The suspects, three Hispanic Male Adults, tried to rob jewelry salesman of his product. The victim (40 years old from Southern California) fought with the suspects and was stabbed during the robbery. The suspects fled southbound on Balentine Drive in what was described as a black, newer Toyota Camry without any of the victim's property. The suspects were all described as being in their twenties with short cropped hair and wearing dark clothing with dark bandanas over their faces. Two of the suspects were described as approximately 5'6" to 5'7" and 130-140 lbs. The third suspect was described as approximately 5'8" to 5'9" and 185 lbs. The victim was transported to a local hospital for his non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to fully recover. It appears the suspects were lying in wait for this specific victim.
At 11:44 a.m., Officers responded to 6100 block of Joaquin Murieta Avenue for a report of a residential burglary that had been interrupted by the homeowner. The victim reported that while he was sleeping in his bedroom, he was suddenly awoken by somebody across the hallway in another room. When the victim opened his bedroom door, he saw a male juvenile and female juvenile standing by the bedroom sliding door. The juveniles ran out the back slider and jumped down to the ground floor level, running through the complex. The victim recognized the juveniles as associates of a nearby condominium. Officers made contact at that residence and subsequently arrested a 16-year-old female along with a 17-year-old male for burglary. No property appeared to have been taken from the residence.
