VICTORVILLE – Authorities are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspects who were involved in an attempted robbery.
On Tuesday, July 17, 2018, at around 12:40 p.m. , a black male adult and two black females went to the home depot located 15400 block of Roy Rogers Drive and attempted to walk out carrying merchandise that had not been paid for.
When approached by the store employees, the male brandished a handgun at the employee. The female dropped the merchandise prior to all three leaving the store.
