Reported attempted robbery leads to arrest of two men in Stater Bros. parking lot
Sheriff’s deputies arrested two men in the Stater Bros parking lot Thursday morning after a woman told authorities her husband was running from a man who had fired a gun in the backyard of their home in the 200 block of Durgin Street.
The woman did not know if the suspect had aimed at her husband, Sgt. Greg Rylaarsdam with the sheriff’s Ramona station reported. She identified the suspect and said he had fled with another man in a burgundy-colored Jeep, said Rylaarsdam.
The incident occurred at 11:23 a.m. A short time later deputies located an eastbound Jeep in the 1600 block of Main Street. The vehicle stopped in the grocery store parking lot. Since the woman had reported that a gun was used, deputies initiated a high-risk vehicle stop and detained the occupants, said Rylaarsdam.
Further investigation revealed that the suspects, Chris Acheson, 26, and Mark Viehman, 42, had gone to the victim’s residents where Acheson produced what the victim believed was a handgun while demanding cash, according to the sheriff’s report.
Deputies were unable to locate any weapons at the initial crime scene, in the suspects’ possession, or inside the Jeep. Acheson and Viehman were arrested and booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of attempted robbery. Viehman also was arrested for driving under the influence, reported Rylaarsdam.
