Teen Robbery and Beating
Two teens have been arrested for robbery, following a brutal mugging last month.
A male juvenile suspect from Oakland and a female juvenile suspect from San Leandro are in custody after being arrested on Nov. 7 for a crime that happened Oct. 15 around 3 p.m.
The victims were a teen girl and her sister who were riding their bikes home on the 1400 block of Bancroft Avenue, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police.
The suspects blocked the girls’ path, forcing them to stop their bikes. The female suspect then demanded that she be allowed to ride the bikes. The victims said no, and the female suspect them began hitting and kicking the victim, even when she was on the ground.
The suspects then left the scene on the bike.
Police searched the area at the time, but did find the suspects until last week.
An alert neighbor helped police arrest two teen suspects for burglary Monday night.
Around 7:30 p.m., the neighbor spotted two men in a car parked near the intersection of Belding Street and Farnsworth Avenue in the Washington Manor neighborhood and called police, according to Sgt. Ted Henderson of the San Leandro police.
The first officer who arrived detained the suspects – who turned out to be 17 and 19 years old, both Oakland residents. Other officers arrived and investigated the area.
A pair of latex gloves was found in the driveway of a home on the 1300 block of Breckenridge Avenue and, upon further inspection, that house had been broken into.
The 17-year-old was taken to juvenile hall and the 19-year-old was booked into the San Leandro police jail.
There have been several recent cases of a neighbor’s report of suspicious behavior leading to arrests.
