  Three men arrested on suspicion of committing a home invasion robbery in San Rafael late Friday afternoon are scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday morning in Marin County Superior Court. San Rafael police identified the suspects as Frank Lee Gray, 23, of Oakland, Khiry Jefferson, 21, of San Rafael, and Kenneth Wayne Woodard, 19, of San Rafael. They were arrested at different locations in San Rafael after a manhunt Friday evening.

All are being held in Marin County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bail. A fourth suspect is at large. Police received a report about a home invasion robbery on Sea Way at 5:30 p.m. The woman caller said several men, including one man armed with a gun, forced their way into her home and then fled in a car, police said.

 Two minutes after the call, an officer on Third Street saw a car containing four men matching descriptions of the robbers. The officer looked into the car and saw the passengers ducking down to hide from view. The officer then drove behind the car on Union Street, where the driver abruptly stopped and all four suspects jumped out of the car and ran away, police said.

 Two suspects were caught and taken into custody immediately, while a third suspect ran into an apartment complex at 302 Fourth St. Witnesses told police the fourth suspect ran north on Union Street, according to police. The area was immediately shut down and police officers from throughout Marin County responded to assist in the search for the two remaining suspects. 

The third suspect was found hiding under a car in a parking lot at the apartment complex and was taken into custody at 7:50 p.m., police said. The search for the fourth suspect was called off at 9:30 p.m. Police described the at-large suspect as a black man, about 20 to 25 years old, who is about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall with extremely short hair that looks almost shaved. He was reported to have been wearing blue jeans and tennis shoes.

 About 50 officers responded to the search, including SWAT teams from the San Rafael Police Department, Marin County Sheriff’s Office and Twin Cities Police. For several hours, a Novato Police K9 unit and California Highway Patrol helicopter combed the area, searching for the suspects, according to police. The robbery victim was not injured.
