On October 5, 2014, at approximately 5:30 p.m., an elderly couple was out for a walk in the area of Maybird Circle/Platinum Terrace in the Ardenwood neighborhood. While they were walking in the eastbound direction on Maybird Circle, an unknown male walking in the opposite direction approached the couple and snatched a gold chain from the elderly female’s neck. The woman’s husband gave chase to the suspect.
The suspect in return produced a handgun, pointed it at the husband and fired two shots into the air. The suspect continued to flee and a third shot was fired for an unknown reason.
Witnesses observed the suspect enter a vehicle occupied by several females who appeared to have been waiting for him. The observant witnesses were also able to provide officers with a description of the suspect and the license plate of the suspect vehicle.
Officers immediately began to follow up on this case and information was produced that led to the identification of the suspect. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant and a search warrant for Dantay Freeman (20 years old/Antioch resident). Due to the violence and weapon utilized in this crime, the Fremont Police SWAT team and Antioch PD assisted Detectives with efforts to locate and arrest Freeman on Tuesday, October 14, 2014.
Freeman was booked at the Fremont Jail on charges of armed robbery and assault with a firearm. He is scheduled for arraignment at the Fremont Hall of Justice today, Thursday, October 16, 2014.
