Police are still searching for two suspects involved with an August San Leandro home invasion robbery after one arrest was made Saturday night. That suspect in custody was being held in lieu of $1.525 million bail in Santa Rita Jail as of this morning. San Leandro police responded to a report of the robbery in the 1500 block of Arena Street on Aug. 25 at about 8:30 p.m. Officers learned that three men had approached the victim as he had been standing in his driveway, police said.
One of the suspects allegedly pointed a handgun at the victim, and all three men took the victim into his house, which was occupied by his wife and two children, according to police. The suspects allegedly ransacked the house, pilfering jewelry, cash and cellphones, police said. While holding the family hostage at gunpoint, one of the suspects attempted to place the male victim in handcuffs. Police said all three men later fled on foot. Evidence collected at the scene led police to identify Frank Scott, 28, as a suspect in the crime, police said.
Scott was contacted by Oakland police officers on Saturday at about 10:40 p.m. in the 1800 block of 102nd Avenue and was taken into custody, according to custody information provided by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office and police. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office charged Scott with robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment and robbery of an inhabited dwelling. The court set Scott’s bail at $1.525 million, and Scott was scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. today in Dept. 502 of the Hayward Hall of Justice.
Detectives are still searching for the two other suspects, who police described as black male adults. Police Lt. Jeff Tudor called the crime “a random act of violence that impacts not only the victims but the entire community.”
