Clovis Police detectives are asking anyone who may have used escort services offered through classifieds.myredbook.com and backpage.com at 275 W. Alamos in Clovis from late October through December 27th to contact them. Right now, investigators have seven confirmed cases of “clients” being robbed, many of them as the perpetrators brandished a handgun and demanded money and property.
Last Friday (12/28), Clovis Police served a search warrant at the W. Alamos address and arrested 19-year-old Bobby Peele who lived there, 19-year-old Javontae Johnson of Fresno and a 17-year-old girl of Fresno. Detectives say the juvenile talked with the potential “customers” on the phone and lured them to the residence, where they were robbed of money and cell phones. Officers recovered some money, cell phones and the handgun when they served the warrant.
