Early Sunday Morning, May 9, 2010, at about 6:15 am, a group of three men and a woman met up in the REI parking lot in the 200 block of North Santa Anita Avenue. The group had met to go hiking. Two suspects approached the group and one suspect suddenly punched one of the male victims in the face, knocking the victim to the ground. The other two male victims stepped in but were also punched during the incident. The second suspect pulled out a knife and the victims were told to hand over their cash. The female victim had locked herself in her vehicle and dialed 9-1-1. Once money and a wallet were obtained, the suspects fled on foot.
Arcadia Officers arrived in the area and located the two suspects near Santa Anita Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. The suspects were positively identified and arrested. Jesus Arredondo, 20 years old from Adelanto and Anthony Lopez, 20 years old from Fontana were both booked on robbery charges at the Arcadia City Jail. The male victims suffered minor injuries and refused medical treatment.
