A San Martin man has been identified as the suspect in an attempted robbery and shooting Thursday at a check cashing business in San Jose, police said today. Oscar Sencion, 21, was arrested around 10:30 a.m. behind a home in the 2000 block of Cinderella Lane after a search of the neighborhood, San Jose police spokesman Officer Albert Morales said.
He was arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, robbery, probation violation and numerous firearms charges. Police began searching the neighborhood after receiving word at 7:48 a.m. of a robbery attempt in which shots were fired at the California Check Cashing store at 2151 Story Road. Morales said an alarm was tripped during the robbery, and when officers arrived they saw a man fleeing and jumping fences.
Sencion was taken to a hospital. His injuries were not considered life threatening, Morales said. A gun was recovered near where the arrest occurred. Sencion is alleged to have fired shots inside the business, but no one was injured. Sencion is being held without bail.
