3 arrested in connection with Walgreens robbery, assault

SACRAMENTO - Sacramento police officers were called to the Walgreens drug store on the 1400 block of Meadowview Rd. at 12:25 p.m. on Friday in response to a robbery and assault.

According to a Sacramento police report, two men entered the store, grabbed some merchandise and attempted to walk out without paying. When a store employee confronted the men, one of them punched the employee, then the two ran out of the store and fled in a vehicle.

Later that day, officers located the vehicle by witness descriptions and made a traffic stop. Inside of the vehicle were Najiib Jones, 18, Anthony Cervantes, 29, Jose Guzman, 22, and a fourth unnamed individual.

Jones was arrested for robbery, Cervantes for an outstanding parole warrant, and Guzman for a warrant and possession of amphetamine, according to the report.

The fourth individual inside the car was released.
