This week we had a slight increase in violent crime. There were two robberies which occurred around the same area, but on different days. One of the robberies occurred from the 26400 block of Carl Boyer Dr. on Tuesday, 12/11/12 between 11:45 a.m. – 1245 p.m. The victim was approached by two males in the parking lot of the location who asked for directions. The males then took her cell phone and money from her purse. Not pleased with the amount of money they stole from the victim, the suspects forced her into their vehicle where they drove her to a nearby bank and had her withdraw more money. The suspects then returned the victim to her vehicle before fleeing the area. Detectives are asking for anyone with information regarding this incident to contact the Santa Clarita Station.
The second robbery occurred along the 26400 of Carl Boyer Dr. on Saturday, 12/15/12, at approximately 6:00 p.m. The victim was waiting outside an eating establishment with his and his brother’s bike. He was approached by two males, one of which grabbed his brother’s bike. The other suspect struck the victim with a Taser before stealing his bike. The suspects rode the bikes out of view. Deputies responded to the location, however, they were not able to locate the suspects.
There was a residential burglary from the 22500 block of Pecan Pl. on Tuesday, 12/11/12, between 7:45 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Person(s) unknown entered the location and stole jewelry and personal electronics. It is unknown how the suspect(s) gained entry into the residence. With the holidays at hand criminals know that most families are storing gifts and other items of value at their residences.
