Assault & Kidnapping In Georgetown…Arrest In San Antonio

Fugitive Apprehended Only Hours After Issue of Arrest Warrants

San Antonio, TX – Chrispin Robledo, 36, was arrested this afternoon by the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in San Antonio, TX. Arrest warrants were issued for Robledo pursuant to an investigation by the Georgetown Police Department (GPD), on charges involving assault and aggravated kidnapping.

Earlier today, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) was contacted by the GPD for assistance in locating and apprehending Robledo. Task force officers, through investigative efforts, determined that Robledo was working at a job site near Blue Wing Road, on the south side of San Antonio. Task force officers conducted a brief surveillance and observed Robledo working at the job site. Task force officers made contact with Robledo and took him into custody without incident.

On November 9, 2013, Robledo allegedly assaulted his girlfriend, Nicole Gallardo, 25, while driving her vehicle from a convenient store in Georgetown, TX. Reports stated that Robledo struck Gallardo multiple times to her face and prevented her escape from the vehicle. Witnesses who observed the alleged assault contacted GPD. Robledo later released Gallardo and GPD officers made contact with Gallardo when she returned to her home. Today, arrest warrants were issued for Robledo on charges involving assault and aggravated kidnapping.

Robledo is currently being held in custody at the Bexar County Jail.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, stated, “I’m extremely proud of our task force officers for making this case a priority. Robledo was arrested only hours after the warrants were issued and task force officers made sure he would not go another day without justice being served.”
