Victim of an attempted robbery found safe
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man who was reportedly missing after an attempted robbery is now safe, according to Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Police said Sasan Valinejad was found at his girlfriend's house. They said he was the victim of an attempted robbery at the Pine Meadows apartment complex on the Southside Monday night.
The case was originally investigated as a missing persons case with possible foul play suspected. Witnesses at the complex reported seeing Valinejad's father running from the scene. The father's wife reported his car as stolen.
Police do not believe this case is linked to an armed robber involved in shootings at two businesses in Jacksonville's Ortega and Avondale areas.
