3 arrested on suspicion of stealing $10,000 bicycle and running over Chino bicycle shop employee
Two men and a woman from Kern County were arrested Monday on suspicion of stealing an expensive bicycle from a shop in Chino in February and running over a store employee with a truck as she tried to stop them.
Ronald Wolfe, 20, of Frazier Park; and Kyle and Nichole Stewart, 27 and 23, both of Taft, were arrested in their towns of residence, according to the Chino Police Department.
The department said in a press release that the three were allegedly involved in a burglary on Feb. 12, when Wolfe and Kyle Stewart walked into Incycle Bicycles in Chino, grabbed a bicycle valued at $10,000 and left the store. Police said they got into a GMC Sierra, which police said Nichole Stewart was driving, and left the area.
“A female employee attempted to stop the suspects and was run over, suffering critical injuries to her head and torso,” police said. “The female victim was hospitalized with significant injuries but has since been released.”
Police said Wolfe and both Stewarts are suspected of committing similar thefts across Los Angeles and Orange counties.
All three were booked into the West Valley Detention Center on suspicion of robbery, conspiracy and attempted murder.
