Napa police are looking for two Hispanic men who reportedly beat, strangled and robbed an unidentified victim in a daylight attack in south Napa Saturday, according to a bulletin from Capt. Jeff Troendly.
Officers responding to a report of a strong arm robbery near Snow Elementary School at about 1:15 p.m. found the victim severely beaten. He was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center, according to Troendly's bulletin, which continues:
The victim was waiting for a female in the area and was approached by two Hispanic male adults both approximately 5’05”, one wearing a black t-shirt and the other a white t-shirt. The suspects began beating and strangled the victim. The suspects left the area taking the victim’s wallet and iPhone.
This case is still under investigation, Troendly said.
Troendly's bulletin also chronicles the arrest Monday morning of a 20-year-old man found sleeping on a porch in west Napa:
Officers were dispatched to 3000 block of Browns Valley Road for a report of an unwanted subject that was sleeping on the back porch of a residence. (S) Dewitt, Joseph (06/12/92 of Napa) was contacted and consented to a search of his person and backpack. Officers located a usable amount of methamphetamine inside of the backpack.
Dewitt was booked at the Napa County Department of Corrections on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine. Arrest information does not indicate a conviction.
