San Luis Obispo police arrested three men early Saturday morning in connection with a string of strong-armed robberies that unfolded after midnight.
Two Cal Poly students received injuries. Neither victim was hospitalized, though one did require medical treatment.
At approximately 2:19 am, multiple attackers beat and robbed a 21-year-old male Cal Poly student near the campus recreation center. The suspects were seen driving off in a green Dodge truck.
A witness to the second assault and robbery, called police at 2:27 am from the 300 block of Longview Lane, not far from the site of the first attack. Again, multiple attackers were assaulting a 22-year-old male Cal Poly student.
Moments later, at 2:36 am, a San Luis Obispo police officer who was dealing with another incident, spotted two men committing an assault near the corner of Walnut and Santa Rosa Streets. A search of the truck, belonging to Ambriz, revealed property belonging to the victims.
Police arrested and booked 23-year-old Steven Medina of Arroyo Grande, 23-year-old Alejandro Ambriz of Tulare and 22-year-old Moses Peralta of Tulare into San Luis Obispo County Jail. They are being held on separate bonds of $80,000 each.
