Abraham James Bautista and Josh Right, both of Palmdale, were arrested Wednesday by Palmdale Sheriff’s Station deputies following an investigation by Santa Clarita Station detectives.

“There’s a whole lot of activity (surrounding the case),” said Lt. Steve Lowe, who oversees the Detective Bureau of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, which investigated the crimes.

Detectives are still investigating to determine if there are more suspects involved in the three crimes that they believe their two suspects committed.

The three robberies took place at the 27000 block of Avenue Hopkins, in the industrial area Valencia; and two incidents on the 24000 block of La Glorita Circle, a residential area in Newhall, an armed robbery and an attempted armed robbery.

In the first incident, the pair allegedly held a knife to a woman in her 60s, demanded her purse, and then, after she refused to cooperate, the victim was stabbed.

The suspects are then believed to have attempted a robbery of two teenagers walking down the street in Valencia.

The teenagers apparently were able to flee without getting hurt or losing any property, and then reported the crime to Sheriff’s Station deputies.

In another incident, the suspects then robbed two other teenagers at knife point.

The suspects took both of their cellphones and other items, such as a wallet.

In the last two robberies, no one was hurt.

The incidents are being investigated by detectives with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, and because it’s an active investigation, no additional information is being released at this time, including information about the suspects.

The incidents are not believed to be related to several armed robberies of gas stations that have taken place over the last six weeks, which are being investigated by the Santa Clarita Valley’s Sheriff’s Station’s Career Offenders Burglary Robberies and Assault team.
