Suspect in three robberies found

A man alleged to have committed three armed robberies in Alameda on Sunday, June 12, is now in police custody, according to the Alameda Police Department (APD).

The suspect, identified as Richard J. Lachaux, 27, was arrested by the San Francisco police officers in San Francisco on unrelated charges, Sunday night at 11:30 p.m. 

APD has been working with the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) to obtain the suspect. Once he is in APD’s custody he will be booked on several charges including armed robbery.

An Alameda man is being held at a San Francisco County jail on $1 million bond for allegedly stabbing a man in San Francisco last month.

Pablo Garcia, 35, is being held at San Francisco County’s San Bruno Complex jail facility. He has been staying at the facility since being booked on May 26. His arrest stems from a May 3 incident that resulted in a 59-year-old man being stabbed in the back. Allegedly, Garcia approached the victim from behind and stabbed him and he immediately fled the scene, according to police reports.

 

An Alameda man is dead and another hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after a shooting early Sunday morning in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District. 

The San Francisco medical examiner has identified the man shot and killed after a bar fight as Joshua Mejia, 26. San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) reported that the shooting happened about 2 a.m., in front of the Marquette Hotel, 965 Geary St.

 

On Thursday, June 23, the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) announced that officers from the department’s Internet Crimes against Children Unit had arrested Alameda resident Emmanuel Ellison, 45. In a press release SFPD stated that it had evidence that led the unit to suspect Ellison of having online sexual contact with a minor.
