Four suspects arrested after robbing juveniles at gunpoint
On September 17th, 2022 at about 6:15 PM, four males in a white Nissan Sentra stopped next to four juveniles skateboarding in the 100 block of Wave Drive, in the city of Vista. The driver of the Nissan exited, pulled out a pistol, and pressed it into one of the juvenile’s back as he demanded his cell phone and cash.
