HESPERIA Authorities arrested a released probationer and an illegal immigrant after they reportedly assaulted and carjacked a man, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Hesperia station officials said.


Samuel Ray Castellanos, 33, and Luis Alberto Tapia, 31, of Hesperia were arrested late Saturday night after being spotted by Deputy Alex Zapata, according to a release.


Authorities received a 911 call at about 6:45 p.m. from a woman who said a bleeding man ran across her yard on Sixth Avenue and that he had just been jumped and carjacked, officials said.


The victim stated two men, later identified as Castellanos and Tapia, had attacked him, took his car keys and drove off in his vehicle.


About five hours later, Zapata was patrolling the area of Danbury Street and I Avenue when he spotted a vehicle matching the victim's stolen vehicle pulling into the Circle K, a release stated.


Zapata, with help of other deputies, was able to detain the men. He later learned Castellanos was on post-release community supervision through California's Realignment Plan, Assembly Bill 109. He was last convicted on corporal injury on a spouse. Castellanos was booked for carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon.


Tapia was arrested for possession of stolen property and was placed on an immigration hold.


Signed by California Gov. Jerry Brown last year, AB 109 shifts "low-level, nonviolent offenders" from the state prison and parole system to county jails and probation departments as a way to deal with crowded state prisons.
