RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Ca. – A Rancho Cucamonga man was arrested for robbing another male victim of his phone after a minor bicycle versus vehicle traffic collision.
On Wednesday, February 24, 2021, at around 4:00 p.m. the victim was driving north on Malachite Avenue in the City of Rancho Cucamonga. As he approached the stop sign, a male subject on a bicycle approached his vehicle and collided into the back of his vehicle. The subject immediately confronted the driver (victim) and demanded his insurance information. The victim grabbed his cell phone to call his parents, but the suspect, later identified as Kevin Maldonado-Davila, 28, produced a knife and took the phone from the victim and fled the scene.
The victim went home where he and his brother traced his phone’s location to a home in the 9500 block of Hampshire Street. The two went to the home in order to retrieve the stolen phone. When they arrived, Maldonado-Davila came from the backyard of the home with a knife and refused to return the phone. The victim and his brother left and stopped down the street to call the police.
Deputies arrived a short time later and searched Maldonado-Davila’s home but did not locate him. Deputies searched the area for him and located him near Malachite Avenue and Foothill Boulevard on his bike. Maldonado-Davila was arrested and booked in at the West Valley Detention Center where he remains in custody on $100,000 bail.
