Homeless Man Arrested For Armed Robbery

Sonora, CA — 21 year old Alex Simmons, a homeless man from the Sonora area, was arrested and booked into the County Jail Saturday evening on a charge of armed robbery.

Two loss prevention agents noticed that Simmons had exited the Pac N Save Market with an unpaid for concealed bottle of liquor.

When confronted outside the store Simmons punched one of the agents and kicked the other. They quickly recovered and tackled Simmons at which time they were almost hit by a passing motorist.

Simmons was taken into custody and immediately turned over the Sonora police officers.
