Man suspected of failed robbery in Azusa

AZUSA — Police jailed an Azusa man Friday afternoon after he allegedly threatened another man with a gun during a failed robbery, authorities said.
William Albarran, 22, was booked on suspicion of robbery, Azusa police Sgt. John Madaloni said in a written statement.
Police responded about 1:30 p.m. to a report of a robbery attempt at Haltern Street and Twintree Avenue, the sergeant said.
An 18-year-old Azusa man had been walking in the area when Albarran pulled up next to him in a black car and asked for directions, Madaloni said.
“When the victim approached the open window to answer, the driver produced a small revolver, pointed it at the victim and demanded the victim’s iPod and other property,” according to the police statement.
The victim ran off without giving up anything, police added.
Investigating officers spotted a car that matched the description parked outside a nearby home, Madaloni said.
Inside the home, he added, Albarran was found wearing the same distinctive clothing worn by the robber.
Though the gun was not found, Albarran admitted to the robbery attempt shortly after his arrest.
According to sheriff’s booking records, Albarran was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail and was due for arraignment Tuesday in West Covina Superior Court.
