The incident took place on August 31 when Boyce and Ramirez entered a shop located on the 8600 block of Avalon Boulevard at around 3:30 p.m. Once inside, the duo proceeded to grab a variety of high-priced items and attempted to leave the store without paying. However, an employee confronted them, trying to prevent their escape. It was during this confrontation that Boyce allegedly punched the worker in the face, causing him to fall to the ground. The suspects managed to flee the scene with the stolen merchandise, leaving the employee with severe injuries that required surgery.

Boyce was also arrested during a traffic stop on October 13, where two firearms were discovered in his vehicle. He was charged with possessing a loaded firearm and is being held on a $240,000 bail.

Ramirez pleaded guilty to one count of robbery on December 5 and was sentenced to five years in prison. Boyce also pleaded guilty to one count of robbery with a great bodily injury enhancement and received a 10-year prison sentence.
