Three men were arrested by officers of the San Juan Criminal Investigations Department (CID), following a report of kidnapping and robbery with aggravation of a man on Tuesday afternoon.
A 28-year-old Las Lomas man reported to police that around 4:30 pm, on Tuesday 13th July, 2021, he was standing in the vicinity of the Aranguez overpass awaiting a taxi, when a silver Nissan Note with three male occupants pulled alongside him.
The man said he entered the vehicle and asked to be taken to San Juan. He said the driver then proceeded off route and locked the doors and sent up the windows. The man said one of the occupants put an ‘L’ shaped object wrapped in a cloth against his leg and proceeded to rob him of a cellular phone and a quantity of cash.
He was then dropped off at the end of Johnny King Road, Aranguez, and the vehicle with the men sped off. The victim made a report to the police and investigations were launched by officers of the San Juan CID.
Based on information received, officers proceeded to San Juan, where they observed the silver Note vehicle with three male occupants.
A search of the vehicle was conducted which resulted in officers finding a cellular phone matching the description of the one which was reported stolen.
The three suspects; a 37-year-old and a 25-year-old, both of San Juan, and a 34-year-old of St. James, were arrested in connection with the incident.
Investigations are ongoing.
