12-year-old and Adult in Custody after alleged involvement in Multiple Armed Robberies across Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA: The Los Angeles Police Department has arrested a 12-year-old and an adult for their alleged involvement in multiple armed robberies across Los Angeles.

They both were arrested after a hot chase across the Los Angeles county on Saturday, after an armed robbery at a convenience store on the 3200 block of South Central Avenue.

After arriving on the scene, officers tried to pull over the suspect vehicle for a traffic stop, but the driver took off running, leading the police on a pursuit. Officers retrieved a gun that one of the passengers had thrown out of the car, according to the police.

At the end of the chase, the suspects (the driver and his passenger) were taken into custody.

The man, who lives in Los Angeles and is 18 years old, is named Nathen Sanchez. The girl’s identity remains secret due to her juvenile status.

During their arrest, police found a substantial quantity of cash that had been stolen during the previous heist inside the vehicle.

According to the police, the two are now being held in connection with an armed carjacking that occurred earlier that day in Boyle Heights. In addition to other offenses in greater Los Angeles, the two are wanted for armed robberies that occurred in Azusa and South Gate.
