Deputies Arrest Two Juveniles After Robbing Victims at Knife Point.
Palmdale Deputies arrested two juveniles Saturday evening after they robbed three victims at knife point.
The three victims were walking through the neighborhood near 27th Street East and Avenue Q-12, when the two juvenile suspects approached them. The two suspects demanded the victims to give them their belongings. When the three victims would not comply, one of the suspects produced a fixed blade knife, grabbed one of the victims, and held the knife to the victim's throat until the other two complied.
The remaining victims emptied their pockets giving the suspects an "IPod" and cell phone before the suspects fled on foot into the neighborhood. The victims flagged down a passerby to notify authorities what had just occurred. Once deputies responded, a description of the suspect was broadcast to nearby units and the Sheriff Department's Aero Unit.
While patrol units began searching the area, the department's aero unit advised deputies that two individuals matching the suspect's descriptions were running along Avenue Q-4 from 30th Street east. The aero unit was able to guide deputies to the suspect's location where one was taken into custody immediately and the other taken into custody after a short foot pursuit.
Both juveniles were transported and booked at the Palmdale Sheriff Station on charges of Robbery. Deputies were able to recover both the victim's cell phone and the knife used in the robbery; however the IPod could not be recovered.
The ongoing investigation will be handled by the Palmdale Sheriff Stations Detective Bureau.
