The victim told investigators that a woman approached him and asked if he could load his phone into his truck.

When the victim agreed and went to plug his phone into the charger, a man approached with a gun and demanded his keys.

The victim gave the man his keys, but as the shooter got into his truck, the victim grabbed him and struggled with the gun. The victim told police that during the fight he bit the suspect on the arm.

One of the suspects fled in the victim’s truck while the others fled in a stolen Kia Optima.

The victim’s truck was recovered a few blocks away with a flat tire.

Bexar County Sheriff’s Deputies located the Kia Optima but called off a pursuit because the suspects were driving on the wrong side of the road. The car was found later that morning and a witness told police that Delgado was driving it.

Delgado was arrested by BCSO for possession of narcotics and admitted driving the stolen vehicle, the affidavit states.

Investigators said Delgado was wearing the same clothes the victim described, had a bite mark on his arm, and the victim picked him out of a series of photos.

Delgado faces a felony charge of aggravated robbery.
