Two men, Salagi Iakopo, 21, and Tehuiarii Matautia, 20, of Carson, were arrested by Fountain Valley police officers on suspicion of robbing a victim at gunpoint and stealing several high-end wristwatches.
The crime occurred last Wednesday at the 18000 block of Brookhurst at about 3:30 p.m. That location is a shopping center that includes a Dunkin’ Donuts.
The suspects were arrested later that day in Long Beach on charges of robbery and grand theft.
Bail was set at $1 million for each suspect according to the Fountain Valley Police.
Iakopo pleaded not guilty to second-degree robbery and has denied being armed with any type of gun. He is being held at Theo Lacy Facility with a pretrial mandatory settlement conference scheduled for Jan. 10 at the West Justice Center.
Matautia was released from custody on Monday.
