On Wednesday, February 27, 2019, at approximately 3:50 a.m., officers assigned to the Eastvale Police Department responded to an armed robbery at the 7-11 convenient store located in the 6000 block of Hamner Avenue. Two suspects, armed with semi-automatic firearms, committed the robbery and fled the area on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. Deputies apprehended one suspect, a 17 year-old Hispanic male, resident of Alhambra, near the store and recovered a loaded semi-automatic firearm.

The second suspect entered a vehicle and drove away from the area. Deputies attempted to conduct an enforcement stop on the vehicle. The suspect fled at a high rate of speed and a vehicle pursuit was initiated. The suspect drove recklessly toward Los Angeles County. Due to the suspect’s driving actions and disregard for other vehicles on the roadway, the vehicle pursuit was discontinued.  

The investigation continued and led to Los Angeles County. A search warrant was executed at a residence located in the 2900 block of West Concord Avenue, in the City of Alhambra. A 15 year-old Hispanic male, resident of Alhambra, was detained regarding the armed robbery. The 17 year-old male and 15 year-old male were ultimately booked into Riverside Juvenile Hall on robbery charges.

This investigation included members assigned to the Eastvale Police Department, the Norco Sheriff’s Office, the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Major Crimes Unit and the Alhambra Police Department.
