An Outlook man is behind bars after he robbed two accused prostitutes in a motel early Friday.
Victor Almaguer, 20, was arrested in his home a within the last few hours with the help of Sunnyside police and the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office, said Sgt. Ryan Kelly.
Almaguer, known only as “Junior,” met the two women at their room at the Days Inn on Second Avenue.
Later, he apparently was angry with the “quality of services” and grabbed one of the women’s purses and tried to walk out, said police.
Almaguer ended up firing a shot into the air with a pistol and then jumped in a silver pickup truck and drove off about 5 a.m.
When the police arrived, they found both women were wanted on outstanding warrants and they were arrested. One was wanted for assault in Vancouver, Wash., and the other had a local warrant.
Almaguer also was taken to the Benton County jail on suspicion of two counts of second-degree assault.
