REGIONAL: Woodland man arrested for robbing woman at casino

BROOKS – A Woodland man was arrested Friday morning after he allegedly attempted to rob a woman outside of Cache Creek Casino.


Javier Agustin Ramirez Orozco, 22, was arrested for robbery at around 8 a.m. Friday, according to a report from Capt. Rich Williams of the Yolo County Sheriff's Office.


Williams said that the victim, a 64-year-old female Vacaville resident, was walking near the casino entrance at around 7:30 a.m. and passed by a handicap parking space, where Orozco allegedly got out of a vehicle and grabbed her purse.


During the struggle for the purse, the victim was dragged on the ground towards the suspect’s vehicle, Williams said.


Orozco eventually gained control of the purse and then drove away on Highway 16, William said.


Shortly before 8 a.m. a Yolo County Sheriff’s deputy located Orozco's vehicle on Highway 16 near County Road 93, according to the report.


Williams said the deputy stopped Orozco and arrested him.


Orozco was booked at Yolo County's Monroe Detention Center.
