The New Year is barely underway and already we have an armed robbery to report here in Santa Ana. The victim was sitting in his car early this morning when he was robbed by two armed suspects, according to the O.C. Register.
SAPD police officers got a call about the incident just after 6 a.m. today. The robbery happened at the 900 block of East Pine Street.
The victim was approached by two suspects – one of them had covered his face with a bandana and he was also brandishing a handgun. He demanded that the victim give up his cash. The second suspect was holding a tire iron, according to Sgt. Don Humphrey of the Santa Ana Police Department.
The victim turned over an unidentified amount of cash and the two robbers took off on foot. The victim was not hurt during the robbery. Unfortunately the police have not provided a description of the robbers.
The robbery happened just north of Roosevelt Elementary School and Walker Elementary School, in Santa Ana’s Ward 2, which is represented by Councilwoman Michele Martinez.
