Police in Lodi, California arrested a man after he was robbed at gunpoint.
Humberto Ramos, 42, called 911 saying he had been robbed at gunpoint by two men who were fleeing on bicycles.
Police arrived at Ramos’ location, but due to a language barrier, the officers were having trouble understanding him, that is until he reportedly said, “Follow me,” made a U-turn and took off towards the alleged robbers.
He quickly caught up to the men, 29-year-old Adam Ramirez and 23-year-old Victor Alvarado, as they rode down the middle of the road.
Ramos then bumped into Ramirez with his vehicle, knocking him off his bike.
The officers had followed Ramos and after realizing he hit Ramirez, arrested both him and the robbery suspects.
On Ramirez, hundreds of dollars believed to have belonged to Ramos was recovered and was arrested on suspicion of robbery. Alvarez, who was found to be in possession of a 9mm Baretta handgun, was arrested on suspicion of robbery, multiple weapons violations and possession of stolen property.
Ramos, the robbery victim who police said had a no-bail warrant for his arrest, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and assault with a deadly weapon, the weapon being the vehicle he hit Ramirez with.
