One man and one male teen have been identified and arrested in relation to an armed robbery that occurred at Victoria Gardens Mall on September 5th.

Efran Tui, 18, and a 16-year-old male, both San Bernardino residents, were found in San Bernardino on September 8th. They each face charges of attempted murder.

At around 7:14 PM three days prior, Rancho Cucamonga police received a report of an active shooter at Victoria Gardens Mall. Two people were shopping at the mall when the suspects approached them and robbed them of personal items—at gunpoint. One of the suspects fired a gun, though no one was injured as a result.

The suspects fled the scene prior to police arrival. A perimeter was established around the mall, but the suspects were not located.

Detectives continued investigating the incident over the course of the next few days and were able to identify Tui and the male juvenile as the robbery suspects. On September 7th, search warrants were issued at each of their San Bernardino residences, which resulted in the discovery of the shoppers’ stolen items.

Tui and the juvenile suspect were taken into custody the following day. Tui was booked into the West Valley Detention Center, while the male teen was booked into San Bernardino County Juvenile Hall.
