Arrest for attempted murder, robbery in Pearsonville

– Press release from the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office:

On Sunday, July 21st at approximately 10:20 PM, Sheriff’s Dispatch was contacted regarding an armed robbery and stabbing that occurred at the Pearsonville Shell gas station.

Pulido

Due to flooding that was affecting Highway 395 near Dunmovin, Inyo County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from Kern County Sheriff’s Office and California Highway Patrol.

Prior to the Inyo County Sheriff’s Deputies responding on scene, the victim was transported to the Ridgecrest hospital, and then flown to Bakersfield for emergency treatment.

The victim, who was an employee of the Shell station, was severely attacked; injuries included facial lacerations, punctured lung, and broken rib. The victim was able to give a partial description of the subject on Sunday evening.

The description, coupled with the image that Sheriff’s Investigators were able to retrieve from surveillance video, were enough information for a “be-on-the-look-out” to be issued to local and allied agencies.

On Tuesday, July 23rd at approximately 4:00 PM, Tulare County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a potential carjacking and stabbing in the Kennedy Meadows area.

At the request of Tulare County S.O., Inyo County responded (due to mudslide activity that was affecting roadways on the Tulare side). Deputies on scene were able to determine that the general description of the subject matched the description of the subject from the recent stabbing in Pearsonville.

The suspect was apprehended at the scene without incident. The suspect was identified as Johnny Pulido-Gonzalez, 24 years old from Los Angeles.

On Wednesday July 24th, Investigators from Inyo County Sheriff’s Office drove to Visalia to interview the Pulido-Gonzalez, where he admitted he was the suspect in the armed robbery and attempted murder in Pearsonville. Currently Pulido-Gonzalez is being held in Tulare County on attempted murder charges.

Inyo County Sheriff’s Office will be requesting a warrant from the Inyo County District Attorney for separate charges of armed robbery and attempted murder.

So I guess we can’t even ask if he is an illegal alien? But we should if we’re going to have immigration reform. Making a decission on immigration reform without knowing if these people are adding to our crime stats wouldn’t be wise.

I think you still can carry a weapon in your house or place of work legally (ie if you are a clerk at a remote gas station with no cops in the area). Read California Penal Code sections 12025 and 12031 if you want to know more about what you… Read more »

Angling for a justifiable reason to kill someone are we? People walking around in public armed is for tribal regions of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia or Yemen. Civilized and educated people don’t walk around armed, living by the law of the jungle.

Desert Tortoise….problem with your reasoning is fine for the people that obey the laws of the land…but not how it is with the others that choose not to. In Oregon,back in 1995, I was robbed at gunpoint at the job I was working at late at night,and two days later… Read more »

I worked for decades in LA and San Diego, always at night and often in the worst parts of town. I couldn’t afford to live in the better parts either. I never carried a weapon and still don’t. I have been shot at, still have one of the bullets in… Read more »

I would have enjoyed shooting that guy driving the mini cooper given the oppertunity.

I highly doubt I would ever pay for a beer at any cowboy bar in the Eastern Sierra again.

DT,
True in your case but in this case the suspect would have most likely been shot and the clerk and the other carjack victim would’ve been better off.

Out of curiosity (since I live in Olancha and have heard a lot of conflicting info) – how was the police response hindered by the flood near Dunmovin since the stabbing happened around 10:20 pm (and I saw the lights from the cop cars on the highway around then) and… Read more »

Well, well, well.

today’s racial stereotyping.

it’s not that absurd.

To bad someone up Kennedy Meadows way didn’t shoot him dead. I know most folks are packing weapons up that way.

My favorite bartender who is also an illegal alien from Mexico said he just hopes he’s not in this country illegally because it makes us look bad. I can understand his concern.
