On Wednesday, March 30, 2016, at about 11:30pm, Sheriff’s Central Deputies assigned to the City of Loma Linda responded to the parking lot of Loma Linda University Medical Center to the report of a male subject trying to get into a vehicle. While responding to the location, deputies received information through dispatch that the subject had unsuccessfully tried to enter a vehicle occupied by a female (victim #1). After failing to enter the first vehicle, he then approached a second vehicle also occupied by a female and tried to enter the passenger side door. The second female driver sped away through the parking lot, causing the suspect to fall from the vehicle. Upon arrival, deputies located and detained the suspect, Anthony Martinez.
During their investigation, they learned that after falling from the second vehicle, Martinez chased V #2 through the parking lot as she attempted to exit the location. Martinez was able to catch the vehicle a second time and tried climbing into the passenger door once again. V #2 was in complete fear of Martinez and continued to speed through the parking lot, causing Martinez to fall from the vehicle again. Neither victim knew Martinez and both were in fear for their safety. Both victim’s indicated Martinez was trying to carjack them while they were in the parking lot. Neither victim sustained any injuries as a result of the encounter.
Although falling twice from a moving vehicle, Martinez did not sustain any injuries. He was arrested, transported and booked at Central Detention Center for three counts of felony violation of PC 664/215- Attempted Carjacking.
