Last name is per Santa Rosa police usage. SANTA ROSA (BCN) A Santa Rosa man was arrested Friday after he allegedly robbed a man trying to buy a phone from him, according to police. The victim, a 21-year-old Petaluma man, had arranged to meet 19-year-old Ricardo Abrica Zuniga in Santa Rosa on Range Avenue, near Jennings Avenue, Thursday evening to buy a phone from him, according to Sgt. David Linscomb.
When they met, however, Abrica allegedly pulled out a gun and ordered the victim to drive him to an ATM machine. The victim drove Abrica to an ATM at the Wells Fargo Bank on B Street in downtown Santa Rosa and withdrew cash, before escaping on foot, Linscomb said. Abrica allegedly escaped with the victim’s ATM card and wallet, and later allegedly made purchases with the ATM card, Linscomb said.
Police located Abrica the next day at his apartment on Range Avenue. Evidence related to Thursday’s robbery was located inside, and Abrica was arrested on suspicion of robbery, kidnapping with intent to commit robbery and burglary, as well as a felony probation violation warrant connected to a prior burglary case.
