You may have seen this man’s photo floating around social media following a robbery on Halloween in a neighborhood off of Virginia. Thanks to several citizens on a social media thread, he was identified as 28-year-old Bradley Angeles. Angeles was caught inside the victim’s car parked in front of a residence and when the victim confronted Angeles, he threatened to use a knife and a struggle ensued. Today, officers spotted Angeles riding a bike downtown and took him into custody. He was booked for robbery, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Late yesterday afternoon officers responded to a shooting in the 200 block of Rosemont Avenue. Witnesses reported seeing a suspect flee from the property with a large caliber assault rifle prior to officers arriving. The 40 year old victim was shot once in the foot and is expected to survive. The victim was unable to provide identifying information on the still outstanding suspect who shot him. During a security sweep of the residence, officers found over 100 pounds of marijuana packaged for sale, methamphetamine and fraudulent identification documents. After the investigation, Juan Rios Magana, 50, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance for sale, child endangerment, forgery, destruction of evidence, possession of marijuana for sale, and using a minor to sell marijuana. Rios’s 17 year old son was cited for several drug offenses.
