Oakland teens arrested after multiple armed robberies and assaults

According to police, officers in Oakland recently arrested three juveniles on suspicion of assault and armed robbery in the city.

Oakland police said officers were notified of a robbery in the area of ​​Fruitvale Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard just before 12:30 p.m. Saturday. They learned that someone withdrawing money from an ATM in the area was robbed by three juveniles.

Two hours later, the same suspects were allegedly involved in a shooting and robbery in the 1700 block of 27th Avenue.

“The victim was working as a sales clerk when one of the armed youths approached the victim and demanded his belongings. The victim complied, but later attempted to disarm one of the two. A struggle ensued, during which the victim was shot,” police said.

Just before noon on Monday, police received word of a robbery in the 500 block of 24th Street. Reports said a person was attacked from behind and pushed to the ground, allowing the same juveniles to take the victim’s belongings.

Half an hour later, the suspects were involved in another armed robbery in the 3400 block of International Boulevard.

“The victim was approached by several individuals who took his belongings. During the incident, one of the juveniles struck the victim with a firearm,” police said.

Undercover investigators eventually arrested the group. They confiscated a loaded firearm from the suspects, police said.

“Investigators are investigating the possibility that these three juveniles are connected to a larger group involved in additional robberies throughout Oakland and are working to make additional arrests in those cases,” police said.
