LINCOLN, Calif. (KTXL) — Three were arrested in connection to an assault and robbery of an elderly cyclist Thursday, Lincoln police said.

All three suspects — 23-year-old Anthony Pintarelli of Lincoln, 26-year-old Luis Arroyo of Stockton and a 16-year-old Stockton resident — were arrested for robbery, elder abuse and conspiracy, police said.
Lincoln police reported that Arroyo and Pintarelli were booked at the South Placer Jail, and the 16-year-old was booked at the Auburn Juvenile Detention Facility.
