Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the final suspect linked to a San Ramon jewelry store robbery last May that ended in one of the suspects’ deaths. Police said Manual Jovan Arroyo, 20, of Hayward, is the only outstanding suspect in an armed robbery that turned fatal at the Gold N Treasures store on San Ramon Valley Boulevard on May 30, 2012. Arroyo and three other suspects, including 18-year-old Kibrom Bairu of Hayward, allegedly entered the store with the intention of robbing it. Someone working at the store shot Bairu, who was armed and died later that day from his injuries.
Another suspect, 20-year-old Krishneel Prasad of Hayward, has been charged with armed robbery and murder under the state’s provocative act law, which states that a co-conspirator can be held accountable when an accomplice’s acts result in death. He is set to return to court for a preliminary hearing in March.
Two other suspects, 22-year-old Gregory Jamal Louis and Michael Porter, 20, have each been charged with second-degree robbery for their alleged roles in the crime. Police said Arroyo, the sole outstanding suspect in the fatal armed robbery, is wanted on a $1.3 million warrant.
Arroyo is of African American and Hispanic descent, is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes. He has multiple tattoos on his arms and on the right side of his neck, according to police. Police said Arroyo is known to live in Hayward but may also have ties to Walnut Creek.
