An undocumented immigrant was reportedly beaten, robbed, thrown into a trunk of a vehicle and driven around the county until he was left near Seeley, where he was found by the U.S. Border Patrol this morning.
The 26-year-old victim, whose name was not released, was taken to Pioneers Memorial Hospital in Brawley, where he was treated for facial lacerations and released.
He remained with county Sheriff's Office investigators this morning who were searching for two of three suspects.
One of the three, a 25-year-old Pomona woman who has been staying with family in El Centro, was arrested and booked into county jail on suspicion of armed robbery, assault and kidnapping.
Sheriff's officials declined to release her name out of concern it could impede the effort to arrest the other two suspects. Her bail was set at $100,000.
