2 ‘Pokemon Go’ players help catch attempted-murder suspect


FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) — Two “Pokemon Go” players out hunting virtual monsters in Orange County ended up helping catch a man wanted in Northern California on suspicion of attempted murder.

The Orange County Register reports (http://bit.ly/29DMewE) 24-year-old Seth Ortega and 27-year-old Javier Soch were playing the popular smartphone game in a Fullerton park Tuesday when they noticed a man bothering a woman with three children. The men, college students and Marine Corps veterans, warned the man and kept an eye on him.

When they saw him follow another woman with children, and then touch one of the kids, the roommates grabbed the man.

Police arrested the man, 39-year-old Jacob Kells, for child annoyance and found that he had an outstanding warrant for attempted murder in Sonoma County.
