The victims said two people used pistols to rob them of their phones. The investigation led deputies to an apartment nearby, in the 500 block of Center, where they detained two people who matched the description of the robbers. There, a news release said, deputies found the clothing worn by the suspects during the robbery, the stolen phones and the pistols.


The victims then identified the robbers, the release said.


Trayvon Barber, 28, of Moreno Valley, and Alleyah Williams, 23, of Riverside, were booked into Robert Presley Detention Center on Friday on suspicion of conspiracy and second-degree robbery, jail records show. The records list Barber’s first name as Travon.


Investigators ask anyone with information on the case to call Deputy Price at 951-955-2600.
