VICTORVILLE –All four suspects were in custody Sunday morning, following a residential robbery in the 14800 block of Apple Valley Road.
The home-invasion robbery was reported at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, 2016. When deputies arrived they learned that four suspects kicked in the door to a home and held several victims against their will. While at the location, the suspects pointed guns at the victims and at times, threatened to kill them as they ransacked their home seeking money and other valuables. The victims were struck by a handgun and fists as the suspects loaded property belonging to the victims into their vehicle and stole one of the victims’ cars before leaving the home.
One victim was able to call the police when the suspects left, and deputies were quickly able to track the four suspects to a home using the GPS on the stolen vehicle. The Sheriff’s helicopter was sent to the GPS location and located the stolen vehicle with several men standing around it in the 12700 block of High Vista Street in an unincorporated area of Victorville. “The suspects fled, however, two of them were caught immediately,” said San Bernardino County spokesman Adam Cervantes. Saffarr Williams, 18, and James Garrett, 27, were apprehended in the neighborhood.
Sheriff’s Aviation saw two additional subjects run into the residence at 12750 High Vista Street. A perimeter was set and PA announcements were made attempting to get the two remaining subjects to come out of the home. Some of the occupants of the home came out of the home, but deputies determined that there was still at least one outstanding suspect inside of the home. Several hours later 28-year-old Robert Clark came out of the home and was taken into custody without further incident. At 7:00 a.m. the Specialized Enforcement Division made entry into the home and located 21-year-old Tyshon Harmon hiding inside the attic.
The victims’ vehicle was recovered at Clark’s home. Some of the victims’ property was recovered from another car parked at the location. The investigation is ongoing, anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact Detective Jonathan Andersen at the Apple Valley Police Department .
