PASADENA — Police jailed three Pasadena men late Saturday on suspicion of beating and robbing another man near a Gold Line station, officials said.
Terry Schaefer, 20, Dustin Fulfer, 18, and Royal Mitchell, 21, all of Pasadena, were booked on suspicion of strong-arm robbery, according to Pasadena police and sheriff’s booking records.
A 26-year-old Los Angeles man was walking about 11 p.m. at Foothill Boulevard and Halstead Street, on his way to the nearby Sierra Madre Villa Gold Line Station, when he was approached by the suspects, Pasadena police Lt. Chris Russ said.
The suspects asked the man for money before proceeding to beat him with their fists and rob him of an undisclosed amount of cash, the lieutenant said.
The alleged victim suffered swelling but was not seriously hurt, police said.
Responding officers found Schaefer, Fulfer and Mitchell a short time later in the parking lot of the Gold Line station and arrested them, Russ said.
According to booking records, they were being held in lieu of $50,000 bail each pending their initial court appearances.
