Miami Police Department Press Release of the Week

Gabriel Soto

C'mon Gabriel. Robbing a guy in a wheelchair? Didn't your mama learn you no manners??



Today, detectives have arrested Gabriel Soto, D.O.B. 9/8/94 and charged him with one count of strong arm robbery and one count of grand theft.

See attached arrest affidavit. Officer Kenia Reyes


On Friday, July 22nd, at approximately 11:35 AM, a wheelchair-bound man was aboard a Miami-Dade Transit bus, when he was befriended by a white Hispanic man riding the same bus. Minutes later, they both stopped at the Northwest 22nd Avenue and West Flagler Street bus stop and exited the bus. Once outside, the suspect asked the victim for a cigarette and as the victim pulled out his pack of cigarettes, his money also fell out. The suspect sought the opportunity and snatched the cigarettes, money and cellular phone, then ran westbound on West Flagler Street.

Fortunately, the victim was unharmed, but the cameras aboard the Miami-Dade Transit bus caught the suspects face, gestures, actions, and intentions.

The suspect is described as a white Hispanic man, clean shaven, approximately 20 years old, 5’7” tall, and weighs approximately 145 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black shirt, olive green shorts and white sneakers.

Detectives need assistance in trying to identify the subject.

Surveillance video is available at the Public Information Office today, from 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM and can only be filmed from the computer monitor.

The investigation continues…..
