SUMMARY:

On Sunday, July 22, 20018, at approximately 12:18 a.m., deputies of the Rancho Cucamonga Sheriff’s Station were working a DUI saturation patrol when they encountered a dispute in the middle of Archibald Ave, in the area of Camden Dr.  The dispute was reportedly over a strong arm robbery that took place at a nearby party.

Through investigation, it was learned that the victim and three suspects attended a party in the 6000 block of Klusman earlier that evening.  The suspects and victim were involved in a minor altercation while at the party.  Suspect Bijon Sheppard reportedly threatened and then forcibly snatched necklaces from the victim’s neck.  Sheppard then fled to a waiting vehicle where Jerome Cook and Myrick Allen waited for him.  The three fled the party, the victim and friends followed until the involved persons met up again in the intersection of Archibald Avenue where deputies located them in a dispute over the incident.

The victim suffered minor scratches and torn clothing during the robbery. Deputies learned the suspects threw the victim’s jewelry from their vehicle.  However, the jewelry was located after a thorough search of the area and returned to the victim.

All three suspects were arrested and booked at West Valley Detention Center on charges of PC182(A)(1)- Conspiracy to Commit a Crime.  Bijon Sheppard was booked with the additional charge of PC211-Strong Arm Robbery.
