Suspects in Homeland Robberies Caught at Border Crossing

Four juveniles accused in two incidents of robbery and assault in unincorporated Homeland were caught Tuesday at the San Diego border crossing as they tried to re-enter the U.S. after fleeing to Mexico, according to a Riverside Sheriff's Department report.

The three male juveniles and one female juvenile are accused of a Dec. 14 crime at the intersection of Leon Road and Allen Avenue. Around 6 p.m., police said, the victim was assaulted and robbed of money and credit cards by suspects who fled on foot.

On Monday, Dec. 17, the same suspects were accused of a robbery near Leon Road and Fretwell Avenue. The suspects assaulted the victim with baseball bats, took his wallet and stole his vehicle. The victim was rushed to Riverside County Regional Medical Center, received emergency surgery and was stabilized in the Intensive Care Unit.

The suspects were apprehended Tuesday in the stolen vehicle as they attempted to gain entry back into the U.S. All four were booked into the Southwest Juvenile Hall on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, carjacking and attempted murder.

If anyone has any information regarding these robberies, they are encouraged to call Investigator Omar Rodriguez with the Riverside Sheriff's Department/Perris Station at (951) 210-1000.
