Authorities Investigating String of Armed Robberies in the Victor Valley

VICTORVILLE, Ca. – Authorities are asking for help to identify suspects involved in several armed robberies last month. The robberies occurred at local businesses in Victorville, Apple Valley, and in Hesperia, as well as people on the street.

Several of these armed robberies took place on October 17, 2019, targeting businesses that night. All of the incidents were similar with the suspects entering the businesses, brandishing firearms, and demanding money from the employees.
