On January 25, 2021, at 8:26 AM, Moreno Valley Station deputies were dispatched to the 23000 block of Ironwood Ave. city of Moreno Valley, regarding a robbery. The suspect entered the location armed with a large knife, demanded money, assaulted the victim and forced the victim to open a safe. The suspect fled the location in an unknown direction.
