Alameda police are crediting detailed suspect descriptions for prompt arrests in two recent strong-arm robbery cases.

On February 15th, just before 5:00 p.m. an adult male was approached by three male suspects on the 1300 block of Park Street. One of the suspects punched the man in the face and stole his iPad. Police searched the area, aided by a detailed description of the suspects, and located and detained a group of males. The victim positively identified the male, a juvenile, who punched him in the face and the suspect was arrested. The iPad was recovered.

On the same day, a juvenile male followed a juvenile female off a bus in the vicinity of the 1400 block of Bay Street. The suspect took the girl’s backpack by force, made lewd comments, and touched her in a sexual manner. The victim screamed and the suspect fled. With a detailed description of the suspect from the victim, officers located a suspect hiding in the rear of an apartment building. The victim identified the suspect, who was subsequently taken into custody.

In both cases, the suspects, as juveniles, were not named.
