On June 6th,  Palm Springs PD investigated a robbery allegation in the 3600 block of N Indian Canyon Drive. The 25 year old victim reported that he was confronted by several males who were sitting in a parked vehicle at a gas station in the 3600 block on N. Indian Canyon.  

One of the suspects asked the victim where he was from and then yelled, “Gateway Crips!”  The victim attempted to get away from the suspects by walking across the street, but the suspects followed him in their vehicle.  At one point the vehicle struck the victim before the suspects proceeded to physically assault the victim causing serious injury which resulted in medical treatment at a local hospital.
