|(May 15, 2020, 9:50 s.m.) -- LBPD learned of the ugly attack on and robbery of a bicyclist along the San Gabriel River bike path near ELB's College Park neighborhood in February, and assisted by a boastful video seemingly shot by someone among a group of individuals involved, pursued the case and quietly made arrests last week (May 6).
This morning (May 15), LBPD announced that the L.A. County District Attorney's office has filed charges of Robbery and Assault With A Deadly Weapon Likely To Inflict Great Bodily Injury against each of four juveniles allegedly involved.
And there's more: LBPD says its Detectives are seeking the public's assistance in identifying and locating additional subjects who were present during the assault. [We're constrained in showing video of juveniles, but we believe a number of ELB residents know what happened. If you do, you should do the right thing and tell LBPD what you know. LBPD Robbery Detective Fermin Gonzalez would like to hear from you: (562) 570-7068. Further on anonymous tips below,]

On February 10, 2020, a male adult victim was riding his bike along the San Gabriel River Trail when he was assaulted and robbed by a group of juveniles. During the incident, several juvenile subjects punched and kicked the victim, knocking him to the ground. Once the victim laid injured, some of the juveniles went through his pockets and stole his wallet and cellphone. After robbing the victim, several of the juveniles threw the victim's bicycle onto the rocks along the riverbed embankment, causing damage to the bicycle.
The victim received medical attention at a local hospital after sustaining bruising and lacerations to his upper torso that were inflicted during the assault.
