A man arrested Saturday in Coachella was suspected of assaulting and robbing a victim just one day after he was arrested in connection with another armed robbery.

Coachella resident David Soriano, 25, was arrested at 12:15 p.m. Saturday by the Coachella Community Action Team for suspicion of robbing a victim at knifepoint in the area of Jackson Street and Avenue 52 at 11 a.m. Thursday, said Sgt. Mariano Matos III of the Coachella Sheriff’s Station.

The second robbery was allegedly committed shortly after he was released following his arrest for suspicion of a robbery at gunpoint on Wednesday.

“Soriano was arrested for (suspicion of) robbery, committing a felony while out on bail, brandishing a knife, assault and witness intimidation,” Matos said. “Soriano was booked at John Benoit Detention Center in the city of Indio and has been denied bail.”
