A white Chevrolet Tahoe pulled into the parking lot and three Native American males got out and approached the two men standing in the liquor store parking lot, according to a press release.

The first Native American male, Alvin Leon Miguel (12/27/84), pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the two victims and demanded their money, the release states.
Miguel’s accomplices, Nehemiah Hill (12/9/83) and Adrian Hill (10/31/87), stood by as Miguel robbed both victims of their money.

“Miguel struck the second victim in the head with his pistol when he did not produce his wallet fast enough,” said Scottsdle Police Sgt. Benjamin Hoster in the release. “All three suspects then re-entered the Chevy Tahoe and the Tahoe pulled into the drive-through of the liquor store.”

Two Scottsdale patrol cars happened be to driving by at the same time. The victims flagged down the passing police cars and told them about the armed robbery, police said.

“The officers conducted a ‘high-risk stop’ on the Chevrolet Tahoe. Miguel exited the vehicle from the rear passenger seat and fled the scene armed with the handgun,” Sgt. Hoster said. “ While running away, he threw the handgun on the roof of the business. The remaining suspects were taken into custody without incident.”

Responding officers found Miguel hiding behind a business approximately one-quarter mile away. Miguel was taken into custody without incident. The handgun was recovered from the roof of the business.

The suspects are being charged with Armed Robbery, Threats, and Assisting a Street Gang, police said.
