On Wednesday, February 27, 2019, at approximately 3:50 a.m., officers assigned to the Eastvale Police Department responded to an armed robbery at the 7-11 convenient store located in the 6000 block of Hamner Avenue. Two suspects, armed with semi-automatic firearms, committed the robbery and fled the area on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

The second suspect entered a vehicle and drove away from the area. Deputies attempted to conduct an enforcement stop on the vehicle. The suspect fled at a high rate of speed and a vehicle pursuit was initiated. The suspect drove recklessly toward Los Angeles County. Due to the suspect’s driving actions and disregard for other vehicles on the roadway, the vehicle pursuit was discontinued.
