From the Elk Grove Police Department
Yesterday afternoon around 2:15, officers responded to two separate incidents that are believed to involve the same suspects. In the first incident, the victim (juvenile) was in front of a business in the 8600 block of Elk Grove Blvd when he was approached by the unknown suspect. The suspect demanded the victim’s property and the victim refused. The suspect and the victim started fighting. A second unknown suspect jumped into the fight and attempted to take the victim’s property. The suspects were unsuccessful in taking the victim’s property and fled in an awaiting vehicle. The victim suffered a minor injury. The first suspect was described as an Asian or Hispanic male 17-20 years old. The suspect vehicle was described as a newer white 4-door sedan.
Shortly thereafter, we responded to a robbery that had just occurred in the 9700 block of Tralee Way. Officers arrived on scene and learned the victim (juvenile) was walking when he was approached by the two suspects. The first suspect was described as an Asian male, 17-20 years old, and the second suspect was described as an African American male, 17-20 years old. The suspects demanded the victim’s property. Fearing for his safety, the victim ran from the suspects. The suspects caught the victim and threw him to the ground. The suspects assaulted the victim while they removed the victim’s property. During the incident, the Asian male suspect brandished a firearm at the victim. The suspects took the victim’s property and fled in an awaiting vehicle that had two females in it. The suspect vehicle was described as a newer white 4-door sedan.
