Last Thursday, a Hemet woman and a juvenile fled the scene of a robbery after a victim was allegedly assaulted.
Around 9 a.m. on Dec. 6, the Hemet Police Department received a call regarding a robbery that had occurred in the 100 block of South Buena Vista Street in Hemet. The caller had advised that someone had been punched in the face and their cell phone was stolen.
The suspects, a male and a female, rode away from the scene on two black bicycles. The victim told officers that one of the suspects was wearing a red sweatshirt with the Sesame Street character named “Elmo” on it. Hemet Police officers responded and located the two suspects a few blocks away on Florida Avenue near Ramona Street. One of the suspects was still wearing the described sweatshirt.
After apprehending the woman and the male juvenile, the stolen phone was recovered and eventually returned to the victim.
Hemet Police Officers arrested 23 year-old Sharice Williams from Hemet for the investigation of robbery. The juvenile was also arrested for investigation and already had an active arrest warrant for a previous theft charge, according to Hemet Police.
The victim in this incident was not seriously injured and did not require transport to the hospital.
