Four people suspected of attacking and robbing a man in downtown Huntington Beach are now in police custody.
According to police, three men and one woman approached the 25-year-old victim around 6:45 p.m. They then jumped out of their vehicle and assaulted the man, inflicting multiple puncture wounds and lacerations.
Huntington Beach Police Lt. John Domingo said authorities were able to stop the suspects after a brief pursuit.
Those arrested include Brandon Espinoza for suspicion of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, Aaron Salinas for robbery and evading police, and Viana Arelalo for robbery. A fourth suspect was also arrested, but because he is a minor the police have not released his name.
