Two transients are in jail after a third transient, who had been beaten and robbed, crawled to the Am/Pm Mini Market at 1015 Main St. Friday afternoon.
According to a report from sheriff’s Sgt. G. Rylaarsdam, Gerald Miller, 65, told deputies he crawled to the market after two men beat him and took several $20 bills from him in an area behind the store just before 2:30 p.m. Miller gave deputies a clothing description and said he knew one of the suspects as Mark or Marcus.
Deputies located two men matching the clothing description in the area. Both had fresh blood from the attack on their persons and clothing, said Rylaarsdam. They arrested Jimmy Dean Freeman, 53, and Mark Pinales, 50, and both were booked into San Diego Central Jail.
Ramona/Cal Fire paramedics treated Miller at the scene for a laceration above his left eye. He elected not to go to the hospital, Rylaarsdam reported.
Pinales faces a charge of first-degree robbery and is in jail on $100,000 bail. A records check revealed that Freeman, arrested for second-degree robbery, was a parolee at large, and he faces an additional charge of violation of parole. His bail is $50,000.
Both suspects are scheduled to be arraigned on May 8 at 1:30 p.m. in El Cajon Superior Court.
