Riverside County Sheriff-Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Robert Thomas

File # L232090032, L232090033


On Friday, July 28, 2023, the Riverside Sheriff’s Lake Elsinore Special Enforcement Team and Robbery/Burglary Suppression Team responded to two separate thefts that occurred in the city of Lake Elsinore. The investigation revealed the suspects arranged to purchase video gaming systems and games from the victims, who were selling the items via a social media application. The suspects took the items during the first incident and fled the scene. During the second incident, the suspects forcibly took the gaming system from the victim and fled. Deputies obtained a description of the suspect vehicle and located it in the city of Perris. Deputies conducted an enforcement stop of the vehicle and detained three suspects. During a search of the vehicle, deputies found a semi-automatic non-serialized handgun and a loaded extended magazine, along with evidence connecting the suspects to the stolen property.

The three suspects were identified as 21-year-old Davon Patterson Jr. and 18-year-old Edward Bullock, both residents of Perris, along with 18-year-old Elijah Robinson, a resident of Moreno Valley. All three suspects were transported and booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center for robbery, conspiracy, possession of a firearm, and extended magazine.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Deputy Noel at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station (951) 245-3300.

As a reminder, “Community Policing” involves partnerships between law enforcement and community members. Business owners and residents are encouraged to report criminal activity directly to law enforcement by calling Sheriff’s Dispatch at (951) 776-1099 or 911 if the matter is an emergency. We would also like to remind the community, if they are going to sell or purchase items via third-party applications or the internet, to choose a safe location such as a local Sheriff’s Station, Police Station, or well-lit area with cameras.
