CENTERVILLE — Two men were in custody and police were looking for two others in an assault and robbery on Tuesday.

Centerville police were called to a report of an assault about 3:45 p.m. Officers found a man "covered in blood (with) swelling to his face and above his left eye, as well as a large cut to the top of his head that medics reported would need staples," according to a Davis County Jail report.

The man told police that he was driving "with what he thought were his friends" when they pulled a gun on him and demanded his wallet, then beat him when he refused to give it to them, the report states.

"(The victim's) wallet was forcefully removed from his pocket, tearing his pants, and (the victim) was thrown from the vehicle." according to a second report.

The victim told police that the driver was Ricardo Jesus Quintero, 18, of Farmington. Detectives kept surveillance on Quintero's residence and watched as two vehicles left his residence.

Officers attempted to stop a gray Honda with one driver and two males in a Dodge Charger. The Honda stopped near Shepard Lane and Frontage Road and the driver angled the vehicle "across both lanes, blocking other officers from the Charger. The Charger took off southbound through the light at Park Lane and onto I-15, losing control and crashing just prior to 200 West," the report states.

Police later announced that Abraham Valdez Alonso, 19, had turned himself in at the Davis County Jail. He was subsequently booked for investigation of aggravated robbery and aggravated assault.

Abraham Valdez Alonso, 19, had turned himself in at the Davis County Jail. He was subsequently booked for investigation of aggravated robbery and aggravated assault.

Police also questioned a girlfriend of one the suspects and believe "that this is not the first aggravated robbery" that the Charger may have been involved with, and it may have also been the vehicle used in a recent drive-by shooting in North Salt Lake, the report states.

The search for two more men continued Wednesday. Anyone with information was asked to call police at 801-292-8441.
