A man was arrested at his Ontario residence after he allegedly shot a liquor store cashier and ran off with cash from the register.
The suspect, 42-year-old Samuel Jacob Felipe, now faces charges of robbery and attempted murder. He is being held at West Valley Detention Center.
The incident took place around 2 PM on May 16th, at a liquor store in the 300 block of North Mountain Avenue in Ontario. Felipe reportedly pulled out a gun and demanded money from the cashier. He subsequently shot the cashier, then stole money out of the register before fleeing the scene.
Police arrived to find the cashier, an adult man, “with an apparent non-life-threatening gunshot wound,” according to the Ontario Police Department. “The male was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.”
Felipe was located at his residence and arrested only about 40 minutes after the robbery.
His court appearance has not yet been scheduled, according to inmate records.
