5 armed robberies in 5 hours: Fresno police arrest 3 young people for weekend crime spree

FRESNO, CA (KFSN) – Two boys and an 18-year-old woman drove around northeastern Fresno, robbing people at gunpoint on Sunday, according to police.

In all, the three committed five armed robberies in five hours, including in the parking lot of the Fashion Fair Mall, before being arrested by police.

Police say 18-year-old Gisela Sampedro acted as an escape guide while the two boys robbed the victims.

Their crime started at 3:30 pm and continued until 9 pm.

But their second victim, the one at the Fashion Fair, was able to get the license plate of their vehicle and a photo of them and their vehicle as they took off.

This helped police locate them on Fresno Street and Gettysburg and identify them as suspects.

Sampedro is being held in Fresno County Jail and the two boys are being held at the Juvenile Justice Campus. Everyone faces charges of robbery and conspiracy to rob.

Police also found two BB weapons and some of the stolen property in their vehicle.
