A robbery victim ended up being arrested in Lodi after he helped police catch the culprits who he said held him up at gunpoint.
Humberto Ramos, 42, telephoned police as he followed two men who he said held him up with a firearm in the 400 block of East Locust Street. He told police that he was following the two men who were on bikes.
Police eventually made contact with him on Central Avenue. The English-speaking officers were unable to understand the Spanish-speaking Ramos until he said "Follow me."
He then made a u-turn and made his way to where Adam Ramirez, 29, and Victor Alvarado, 23, were riding down the middle of Vine Street.
It was at that point that police said Ramos used his vehicle to hit Ramirez, causing him to fall off his bike. Both suspected bike-riding robbers were taken into custody.
Police said that Alvarado had a loaded 9mm Baretta handgun. Ramirez had several hundred dollars police believe was taken from Ramos.
Ramirez was arrested on suspicion of robbery. Alvarado was arrested on suspicion of robbery, multiple weapons violations and possession of stolen property.
Police said that robbery victim Ramos had a no-bail warrant, is suspected of driving under the influence and was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon - the vehicle with which he bumped Ramirez.
