An Indio man was arrested on suspicion of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon in connection with an incident that happened last November, officials announced Friday.
Frank Gonzales, 22, was taken into custody at 5 a.m. on Thursday after officials executed a search warrant that was issued for a robbery back on Nov. 28, 2019, according to a news release from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
The victim had their property stolen and was subsequently shot by the fleeing suspect, the release stated.
Gang Task Force officers seized a 30-30 rifle, derringer pistol and body armor while executing the search warrants.
Gonzales, who authorities said is a documented gang member, was booked at the Indio Jail, according to the release.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Officer James at 760-836-1600.
