Juvenile Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested

Alameda police arrested a juvenile teenager Wednesday, Feb. 2, for an alleged armed robbery that took place last month.

According to an Alameda Police Department (APD) report, the incident took place on Jan. 12 on the 2900 block of Adams Street. The suspect, whose name is being withheld due to his minor status, along with another suspect, are accused of brandishing a handgun in the direction of two adult males and demanding property. Investigators believe the second suspect is also a juvenile. The report did not say which suspect brandished the handgun.

APD investigators were able to locate some of the victims’ stolen property using technology.

“The property was soon recovered, but both suspects remained outstanding,” the APD report stated. “As APD detectives continued with its investigation, one of the suspects was identified.”

The teen is believed to be connected to additional armed robberies in the Oakland and Hayward.

APD’s Violent Crimes Unit assisted the Hayward and Oakland police departments with a search warrant at a Bay Area residence. During the search, more than a dozen items of stolen property and ammunition were recovered, and the juvenile was taken into custody.

APD is still searching for the second suspect as of Friday, Feb. 4.
