A Fontana MP arrested a man suspected of committing a robbery after meeting a victim for an Instagram sale, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
On March 7 around 8:58 p.m., Deputy Cooper from Fontana Sheriff’s Station answered a 9-1-1 call at a community park in Rosena Ranch that included an attack.
When Cooper arrived, she discovered that the victim had placed an online advertisement for the sale of Nike shoes and agreed to meet a potential buyer, who was later revealed to be the suspect, identified as Joshua Lorick, 19, by Adelanto. Lorick met the victim at the community park at night and asked to see the Nike shoes the victim had listed for sale via Instagram.
When the victim showed Lorik the shoes he was trying to sell, Lorick allegedly punched the victim in the face and knocked him to the ground. Lorick and an unidentified suspect sitting in the front passenger seat of a waiting vehicle allegedly grabbed his shoes by force and fled the scene.
Cooper received medical assistance for the victim and conducted a full investigation.
After identifying Lorik as a suspect, Cooper found him, interviewed him, and arrested him for robbery at gunpoint. Lorick was transported to the West Valley Detention Center, where he was booked without further incident.
Cooper is trying to identify the unknown secondary suspect sitting in the passenger seat involved in the crime.
