One suspect has been arrested after a group of four armed men attempted to rob a home in Vallejo Sunday evening, police said.
Police received reports of an armed home invasion robbery occurring in the 1600 block of Sacramento Street around 7 p.m. Sunday, according to Vallejo police Capt. James O’Connell.
Responding officers learned that the four armed men who entered the house were confronted by multiple family members, causing the suspects to flee on foot.
Family members from the home attempted to follow the suspects, but the suspects eventually separated and ran off into different directions, O’Connell said.
Witnesses were able to help Vallejo police track down one suspect to a property in the 200 block of Nebraska Street, where the man refused to surrender and had to be taken into custody with the help of a K9 unit.
Once arrested, police determined that the 15-year-old suspect had been struck by a car that was driven by one of family members searching the neighborhood for him.
Further investigation revealed that the suspect had pointed his firearm at the family member driving the car, causing the family member to strike the suspect with the car out of fear of being shot, according to O’Connell.
The 15-year-old suspect, of Oakland, was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery, brandishing a firearm, criminal threats and resisting or obstructing a police officer, O’Connell said.
