RESIDENTIAL ROBBERY SUSPECTS CHARGED
On January 28, 2016 at approximately 2:30 pm officers were dispatched to an apartment in the 500 block of Ximeno Avenue regarding an unknown trouble call.
The calling party advised dispatch that he was talking to his roommate on the phone and was told there were subjects in their apartment he did not recognize. The calling party said he could hear yelling and some sort of argument in the background and then the phone was hung-up. He then immediately called the police.
