Victorville Store Employees Take Down Armed Robber

VICTORVILLE (CBSLA) — Three people are in custody on suspicion of attempted robbery after being outmaneuvered by liquor store employees in Victorville.

Police officers called out to Victor Valley Liquor & Jr. Mart Saturday night arrived to find employees holding down a shirtless Kenneth Duane Wolfe, 41. The employees had disarmed Wolfe when he came in to try to rob the store, police said.

Investigators say Wolfe is also a suspect in a gas station robbery earlier this month.

Police also arrested Kimberly Padilla and Richard Arreola, both 33 years old. Wolfe is being held on $100,000 bail, while Padilla is being held on $25,000 bail. Arreola is being held without bail for a parole violation.

All three are expected to appear in court Tuesday.
