A 17 year-old victtim was sitting on a bench at Chavez Park with a friend when he was approached by three male youths.

Officers making an area check for the suspects located Kevin Medina (19), and two male juveniles, ages 15 and 14 as they walked on Terrace St. near N.

It was learned the victim was targeted because the suspects believed he was a rival gang member.  All three suspects are believed to be gang members and were booked for the robbery and a host of other charges, such as conspiracy, possession of marijuana, and gang enhancements. The knife used in the robbery and victim's property were recovered.
