On May 5, 2020, at 10:00 A.M., deputies from the Perris Station responded to a report of a robbery that occurred in the 27000 block of Moonridge Drive near Hillpointe Drive, in the City of Menifee. The victim advised a Black male adult, later identified as Rollin Wilkerson, a 33-year-old male, residing in Menifee, assaulted him and rifled through his pockets, stealing his personal property. Wilkerson’s left the location in a vehicle.
Deputies responded to the area and located Wilkerson, driving his vehicle, and attempted to conduct an investigative stop. A pursuit was initiated after Wilkerson failed to yield, which entered the southbound I-215 Freeway. Wilkerson fled into San Diego County, at which time California Highway Patrol personnel assumed the vehicle pursuit.
Wilkerson ultimately lost control and was involved in a roll-over, single-vehicle traffic collision on Highway 76, near El Camino Real, in the City of Oceanside. The suspect was taken into custody and later taken to a local hospital for medical treatment, prior to booking.
Anyone with additional information is urged to call Investigator Pike at Riverside County Sheriff’s Perris Station at (951) 210-1000.
