CENTERVILLE — Two men are being held in jail after being arrested for their alleged participation in an armed robbery and chase with police officers Tuesday night.
Ricardo Jesus Quintero, 18, was booked into the Davis County Jail for one count of aggravated robbery Tuesday. He is believed to be one of four suspects in an assault and armed robbery in Centerville, court documents say.
Police had identified a second suspect as Abraham Valdez Alonso, 19, who has ties to the Farmington area.
Around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Centerville Police announced that Alonso had turned himself into police custody and was booked into the Davis County Jail a short time later.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Alonso was being held on charges of aggravated robbery and assault. His bail amount is listed at $25,000, according to online booking records.
The two other suspects in the robbery have not yet been identified.
At 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, Centerville Police responded to a report of a man who had been assaulted by four individuals. The victim told police that he had been driving with “what he thought were his friends” when they told him to give him his wallet, according to Quintero’s probable cause statement.
When the victim refused, the suspects began to beat him, “striking him multiple times,” and one of the males allegedly pulled a gun, demanding the wallet. The victim gave the suspects the wallet and then was thrown from the vehicle.
The victim sustained multiple injuries to his face and a large cut to the top of his head that would need staples, court documents say. He was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.
The victim identified Quintero as the driver of the vehicle. Police say Quintero did not draw the gun but that he did allegedly help assault the victim.
Police went to Quintero’s address in Farmington where they found the vehicle that was allegedly used in the assault, a gray Honda Accord.
Quintero left the residence in a Honda while at least two other males got into a Dodge Charger. Police stopped the Honda on southbound Frontage Road from Shepherd lane, but Quintero allegedly angled his vehicle across both lanes of traffic to block police from getting to the Charger.
The Dodge Charger sped off southbound through the light at Park Lane and onto Interstate 15 before it lost control and crashed near 200 West, court documents say. Three suspects fled on foot from the Charger and police conducted a search for the suspects using K9s and a helicopter.
Charges against Quintero or Alonso have not yet been filed in 2nd District Court.
