One Suspect Arrested In Fairfield Cellphone Robbery, Two Others Sought


Fairfield police have arrested one suspect and are seeking two others believed to have robbed a victim of his cellphone on Monday. At about 10:20 a.m. Monday, the victim called Fairfield police to report that the suspects had stolen his cellphone in a strong-arm robbery in Suisun City and that he had followed them to Fairfield, police said. The suspects were driving a brown 1987 Toyota Corolla and parked it in the 100 block of Villa Circle in Fairfield, according to police. Officers responded to that block, and the suspects fled north on foot, climbing over fences into a residential neighborhood, police said. Ground units and a CHP helicopter scoured the neighborhood for the suspects, and one was located on a roof in the 1200 block of Meadowlark Drive.

He was taken into custody and identified as 19-year-old Jakkari Sampson, of Dixon, police said. He was found to be in possession of the victim’s cellphone. Sampson was arrested for possession of stolen property and robbery, police said. The other two suspects were not located. The suspects’ vehicle was reported stolen out of Vallejo on Sunday, and the trio is believed to have taken it during an armed carjacking, Fairfield police said.
