Citizen Apprehends Robbery Suspect at North Side Stripes


SAN ANGELO, TX – Officers with the San Angelo Police Department arrested two suspects Monday after they attempted to steal beer from the Stripes convenience store on La Follette. 

According to the SAPD, just before 2:00 a.m., San Angelo Police were dispatched to the Stripes Store located at 1606 La Follette Street for the report of a robbery in progress. 

When units arrived, they learned from a store employee that a witness inside the store apprehended one of the robbers, later identified as 19-year-old Jon Marc Guerra. 

The preliminary field investigation revealed a 16-year-old female suspect was in the process of committing a beer theft, and when the witness attempted to apprehend her, Guerra and another male suspect jumped out of a white passenger car and began assaulting him. The Good Samaritan, who sustained injuries during the assault, was able to detain Guerra and return him to the store until police arrived. The 16-year-old female suspect returned to the store on her own accord; however, the second male suspect fled the area and his identity and whereabouts are not known. 

Both Guerra and the juvenile female suspect were charged with Robbery. Guerra was transported to the Tom Green County Jail. His bond was set at $35K. The female was transported to the Tom Green County Juvenile Justice Center. 

If you have any information about this incident or the identity and whereabouts of the third suspect please contact the San Angelo Police Department at (325) 657-4347.
