Wildomar juvenile charged with robbery

A 16-year-old male Wildomar resident was booked into Juvenile Hall and charged with robbery on Friday.

On November 27 at about 7:20 p.m., deputies responded to a report of a robbery in the 400 Block of E. Lakeshore Drive in the City of Lake Elsinore. Two victims reported being robbed by five to six unidentified Hispanic males, two of which they say pointed guns at them. Police say personal property was taken from both victims during the robbery.

Deputies located a subject matching the description of one of the suspects in a nearby residential area. When the deputy tried to contact the suspect, the suspect ran from the deputy and a foot pursuit began. During the pursuit, police say the suspect dropped what appeared to be a handgun. It was recovered by an assisting deputy and later identified as a pellet/BB gun resembling a real pistol.

The suspect was positively identified and taken into custody. This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Deputy O’Steen at the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station at 951-245-3300.
