"Did you first go to downtown office?"
"I am come from there only."

Is what is in bold form idiomatic? Or. is "I am come right from there' correct?

    Hi Pidgin,

    "Did you go to the downtown office?"
    "I have (I've) just come from there."

    "To be" is no longer used in forming the present perfect in English.
