No donuts were harmed during the commission of this crime.
A man who is believed to have held up a Simi Valley doughnut shop has been arrested.
The incident happened in early-November, police said, when they received a call about a robbery that had just taken place. The suspect is said to have strolled into the shop, opened the cash register and helped himself to an undisclosed amount of cash.
The employee was completely taken aback by all this, and when he tried to stop the suspect, he became angry and started yelling. The employee said he didn’t take things any further because he was concerned the suspect would become violent.
During the course of the investigation, police were led to a man who has since been identified as Nathaniel Corro-Beltran. He was arrested a short distance from the shop, police said, but Corro-Beltran did not surrender easily.
He led officers on a short chase and wound up sustaining injuries due to his attempts to resist arrest.
The now-defendant is being held at the Ventrua County Jail; he was charged with resisting arrest and felony robbery.
