VICTORVILLE – A 15-year-old boy was robbed after meeting two Hesperia men who he planned to purchase a phone from on Monday afternoon. At around 2:44 p.m. the male juvenile went to the area of Yucca Avenue and Heartsease Lane to meet the two suspects, who he planned to make a cell phone purchase from.
When he arrived, he made contact with Hesperia residents, Joseph Mohammad, 19, and Kaoud Mohammad, 23, who arrived in a red Toyota. Joseph got out of the car with a cell phone case and began to show it to the victim. Kaoud, who was the passenger, pulled out a gun and ordered that the victim give Joseph his money. In fear for his life, the young victim handed over the cash and the suspects fled the scene throwing the cell phone case, which contained a plastic display phone from the vehicle.
The suspects identities were confirmed using information provided by the victim and on December 7, 2016, a search warrant was authored and served. Several items located at the home linked the two to the robbery. Both were arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center for Robbery.
