Point Loma Robbery Suspect Arrested

An armed robber who went after targets of opportunity mainly in Point Loma, was just arrested, police say.

Channel 10News  reported:

A community relations officer for the San Diego Police department posted a note on social media Monday saying the serial armed robber had been arrested.

Here is what we reported in early October about the seemingly random targets:

There’s been a string of 4 armed holdups in Point Loma and Ocean Beach lately and police are looking for a suspect that fits the description given by victims.  The stick-ups happened from September 19th to the 21st, where the armed suspect accosted people late at night or early in the mornings.

Even though the local TV media stated that all the robberies occurred in Ocean Beach, actually only one or two did – the rest were in parts of Point Loma. (Local mainstream media is constantly doing that – portraying crimes in OB that really occurred in other sections of the Peninsula.)

Here’s an accounting of the armed thefts:

  • First holdup – Sept. 19:  at 11:20 p.m. –  a woman was sitting on a bench in the 2300 block of Famosa Blvd., when a man came up and demanded  her property.
  •  No. 2 – Sept. 20 at around 3 a.m. (less than 4 hours after the first) – a male on a bicycle on the 1300 block of Sunset Cliffs Blvd. was confronted by the suspect who pushed him off the bike during the stickup.
  • No. 3 – Sept. 21  at 1:50 a.m. a man walking in or near the park next to the 700 block of Sunset Cliffs Blvd. was confronted by 3 guys, one of them pointed a black semi-automatic handgun. Another punched him during the robbery.
  • No. 4 – Sept. 21 – 15 to 25 minutes after No. 3 a.  in the 2100 block of Catalina Boulevard, 2 guys were walking when they were stuck-up by a man with a gun, who then jumped into a white Ford escort – meaning at least 2 were involved – which then took off.
