APD Arrests Armed Robbery Suspect; Still Seek Another

On Feb. 14, the United States Marshals Service (USMS) assisted members of Alameda Police Department’s (APD) Violent Crimes Unit with the arrest and service of a search warrant for the suspect who allegedly committed armed robbery on Jan. 11.

“This operation was the result of tireless weeks of investigation resulting in a verified address for our suspect outside of Alameda,” according to an APD press release.

Along with members of an outside agency’s patrol division, the USMS detained our suspect and secured the residence he was associated with. APD’s VCU detectives recovered evidence associated with this investigation and took custody of the suspect without incident. While the main suspect, an unidentified male, is in custody, an associated female accomplice is still outstanding.

According to APD reports, on Jan. 11, two suspects, a male and female, confronted a male customer inside Monkey King restaurant on the 1700 block of Park Street around 6:30 p.m., (“Alameda Police Seek Armed Robbery Suspects,” Jan. 20). During the exchange, the male suspect brandished a firearm, believed to be an assault rifle, and demanded the customer’s property. The customer and suspect struggled over the weapon and the weapon was discharged. The alleged male and female suspects fled the scene with some of the victim’s belongings.

The customer, nor any of the other patrons, was shot during the incident.

Police released surveillance footage photos of the two suspects from inside the business. The female suspect had a large teddy bear tattoo on her left thigh. Anyone with information on the female suspect is asked to call APD’s Violent Crime Unit at 510-337-8336.
