Visalia robbery suspect sought

Visalia police are looking for a man who they say has committed several armed robberies since July.

Jose Sobalbarro Zeledon, 31, is suspected of committing an armed robbery at Riverway Sports Park at Riverway Drive and Road 124 on July 31; the Target parking lot on North Dinuba Boulevard on Aug. 20; and again at Riverway Sports Park on Sept. 19.

In each case, police say Zeledon approached a male and female who were parked in a vehicle late at night or in the early morning. He produced a weapon and demanded property and fled when he got what he wanted.

Zeledon is a transient and frequents the north Visalia area where these crimes occurred, police said.

He is described as Hispanic, 5-foot-9, 130 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

If you see Zeledon, police say that you should call police at 559-734-8117 or 911. You can also give anonymous tips by calling Crime Stoppers at 559-498-7867.
