On Friday, July 29, 2017, at approximately 8:35 PM, Barstow Police Officers responded to the Tanger Mall located on the 2700 block of Tanger Way regarding a report of an armed robbery.
Officers arrived on scene and spoke with the victim, Weikai Sha. The victim reported that two male subjects pointed a firearm, possibly a shotgun, at him and struck him in the face with the firearm, as they demanded his personal property. The victim reported that the two subjects robbed him of several thousand dollars in U.S. currency as well as numerous items of property that he had purchased from the Coach Outlet store. The victim stated a female subject accompanied the two males and alerted them when the outlet security guard was approaching. The three suspects were able to flee from the scene in a vehicle.
As the suspects fled, the victim was able to obtain a vehicle description and a partial license plate of the suspect’s vehicle. Officers broadcasted the suspect’s vehicle description to the California Highway Patrol as well as the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in an attempt to locate the vehicle.
Detective Tom Lewis responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.
Approximately forty minutes after the robbery, CHP officers located the vehicle driving south on Interstate 15 midway between Barstow and Victorville. As CHP officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, the driver of the vehicle failed to stop and led officers on a pursuit.
The vehicle exited the freeway at the Stoddard Wells off-ramp and entered a residential area. The vehicle was involved in a single vehicle traffic collision in the area of Dante Street and Juniper Avenue in the City of Victorville. CHP Officers, with the assistance of SBCSD Deputies were able to take the sole occupant of the vehicle into custody without incident. Officers identified the driver as Isis Womble.
Detective Lewis conducted an infield show-up at the scene and the victim positively identified the vehicle as the one the suspects fled in and Womble as the female suspect at the scene when he was robbed.
Officers placed Womble under arrest and transported her to the Barstow Police Department. Womble was subsequently booked at the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Jail for PC 211-Armed Robbery.
The suspect’s vehicle was towed to the Barstow Police Department for processing.
On August 1, 2017, Barstow Police Department Evidence Technicians processed the suspect’s vehicle. Detectives located several items of the stolen property taken from the victim during the robbery. Evidence Technicians collected forty-six (46) Coach Purses, thirty-seven (37) Coach Wallets and eight (8) Coach Belts from the vehicle. Detectives did not recover the firearm used during the robbery.
During the course of the investigation, Barstow Police Detectives identified the two male suspects in the robbery as Travon Attison and Jeffrey McCutcheon.
