The caller stated that the victim was walking on Higuera when an unknown suspect approached and forcibly grabbed the victim’s hat and sunglasses. When the victim tried to retrieve his property, a brief physical altercation occurred, and several punches were thrown. During the altercation, two more suspects approached, one of whom pulled out a knife.robbery 1
