TEMECULA - SHERIFF PRESS RELEASE - At approximately 9:20 AM, a male adult entered a business in the 28000 block of Jefferson Avenue. The male removed a black handgun from his waist and approached several employees and demanded money. Several employees complied and handed the armed male cash and at least one wallet.

The suspect fled the business in a black, late-model vehicle. A description of the suspectís vehicle and clothing was quickly broadcasted to responding officers. A Temecula Police Department Motor Enforcement Officer saw the vehicle and matching suspect and attempted to catch up to the vehicle. The suspect driver fled south onto the I-15 Freeway. The driver attempted to exit the next off ramp, lost control of his vehicle and crashed, ejecting himself in the process. As a result of the collision, and subsequent ejection, the suspect suffered major injuries and was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. The suspectís identity will not be disclosed as the investigation is ongoing.

Items taken during the robbery were located in the suspectís vehicle. The suspect will remain in the custody of the Temecula Police Department until his recovery will allow booking.

Any persons with additional information related to this investigation are encouraged to contact the Temecula Police Department during normal business hours at (951) 696-3000, after hours at (951) 776-1035.

Please follow up and let us locals know if this results from the prison inmate early release program. It is important. We need to know who is out there.
