A call made on a borrowed cellphone led to the arrest of a man suspected of robbing a woman at a drive-up ATM in San Rafael last week, police said this morning.Trenton Taylor, 20, was arrested around 7:30 p.m. Monday at his Santa Venetia home on suspicion of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher said.
Taylor is suspected of robbing a 22-year-old woman at knifepoint around 7:20 p.m. Wednesday as she sat in her car at a Bank of America ATM at 1000 Fourth St.Police received several tips after they released video footage of the robbery and a sketch of the suspect on Friday.One of the tips was from a man who said someone matching the suspect’s description had borrowed his cellphone and made a call around the time of the robbery, Rohrbacher said.
Detectives contacted the person who was called on the borrowed phone, and that led to the identification of Taylor as the ATM robbery suspect, Rohrbacher said.Taylor is being held in Marin County Jail on $75,000 bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon in Marin County Superior Court.
