According to police reports, members of the Temecula Police Department arrested two 20 year-old men on robbery charges after the suspects held up a local man.
The incident took place just after 1 a.m. on Dec. 5, when a man was walking along a portion of Winchester Road. At some point, the two suspects approached him. One said he had a gun, and demanded the victim hand over his wallet and phone.
The second suspect proceeded to punch the man in the face before taking his keys, phone and wallet. The robbers then jumped into a dark-colored vehicle and fled the scene of the crime.
Authorities put out a radio bulletin to other local law enforcement agencies. Less than an hour later, a Hemet Police Department officer spotted a vehicle that matched the description of the one that was involved in the crime. When the officer pulled the vehicle over, he found a gun along with the victim’s stolen property.
The defendants were arrested and booked into the Southwest Detention Center where they are being held on undisclosed bail bonds.
