East Palo Alto police arrested two suspected gang members after a brief standoff at a home in the city early this morning after receiving a tip about a suspect involved in a carjacking last week, police Detective Angel Sanchez said.Donell Webster, 22, and Danny Coleman Jr., 20, both allegedly members of the “Taliban” street gang, were arrested at a home at 2370 Ralmar Ave. after a standoff that ended at about 1:25 a.m., according to Sanchez.Police had received information that Webster, a Menlo Park resident, was inside the home. The FBI, the Menlo Park Police Department, and the San Mateo County gang task force helped to surround the home.A public address announcement was used to try to get Webster out of the home, but he refused. A police detective also called Webster, who answered the phone, but disconnected the call when the detective identified himself.Authorities believed Webster to be armed due to the nature of the crime he was wanted for, a July 14 carjacking near the intersection of Ralmar
Avenue and Bay Road, according to Sanchez. As a result, the SWAT team from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene. Investigators learned that Coleman, who was wanted on twooutstanding state and federal arrest warrants, was also inside the home.Both suspects eventually surrendered without incident, and were taken into custody by 1:25 a.m., Sanchez said.After the arrests were made, a search of the home revealed three handguns, according to police.Webster and Coleman were both transported to San Mateo County Jail for booking.
