On May 15, 2018, at approximately 2:37 P.M., Barstow Police Dispatch Center received a call regarding a disturbance at Barstow Station, located in the 1600 block of East Main Street. The caller told dispatch, a man and a woman were physically assaulting a female in the rear parking lot of the business.
The caller provided a description of the two suspects to the dispatcher. While still on the line, the caller told the dispatcher that the female victim was able to escape from the two suspects and was now inside the business.
When the officers arrived at the scene, they located the female victim. The officers observed that the victim was injured and bleeding from her face and body.
Officer Franklin interviewed the victim and a witness to the incident. Officers learned that the victim was involved in an argument with the female suspect earlier in the day in Los Angeles, CA. After the argument, the victim boarded a Greyhound bus in Los Angeles bound for Las Vegas. When the bus arrived at the Greyhound Bus Station located at Barstow Station the victim exited the bus and observed the female suspect who she got into a disagreement with in Los Angeles, approaching her. The female suspect was now with a male subject and both approached the victim.
The female suspect began yelling at the victim and then suddenly physically attacked her. The female suspect punched, kicked, and tased the victim with a Taser she brought with her.
As the female suspect was physically assaulting the victim, the male suspect pulled the victim’s purse off her shoulder. The victim was able to escape the assault and run into the Barstow station where she called the police. Both suspects fled from the area on foot taking the victim’s purse with them.
The victim sustained cuts and abrasions from the assault but declined medical attention at the scene.
Officers conducted a search of the area for the suspects and located both of them in the corner of the parking lot. The officers identified the male suspect as Johnathan Rogers and the female suspect as Addeson Randall.
Officers conducted an in-field show-up with the suspects and the victim positively identified Randall and Rogers as the suspects that attacked her.
Officers placed Randall and Rogers under arrest and transported them to the Barstow Police Department.
Officer Franklin searched Roger’s vehicle, which was still in the parking lot, and located the Taser used to assault the victim. Officers collected and booked the Taser at the Barstow Police Department as evidence. The victim’s purse was later located in the parking lot and returned to her.
Randall and Rogers were subsequently booked at the High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto for a violation of Penal Code 211-Robbery.
