NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a San Francisco man was arrested after running inside the BottleRock Napa Valley music festival in a foiled attempt to evade law enforcement after a reported armed robbery.
The Press Democrat reports the incident Saturday caused the entrance gates to the three-day outdoor festival to be temporarily locked down.
The Napa Valley Police Department says it responded to a call about an armed robbery from the victims who say they met the suspects for a private party jewelry sale. No other details about the encounter were provided.
The victims, who were not injured, told dispatchers the suspects fled in a Hyundai.
