Police captured four suspects in a string of nine armed robberies committed within two hours across a large area of Oakland Monday afternoon, a police captain said today.
The suspects were caught after leading officers on a brief pursuit in a stolen car, police Capt. Steven Tull said.
The armed robberies were all reported between 12:48 p.m. and 2:46 p.m., Tull said.
They were at 3465 Brookdale Ave., 4200 Boston Ave., 4058 Lyon Ave., Laguna Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard, 3026 57th Ave., 3300 E. 16th St., 506 E. 19th St., Bayview Avenue and Elliot Street and at 2914 56th Ave., according to Tull.
Officers were able to track the victim’s cellphone in the first robbery, eventually leading them to the stolen car. The suspects briefly fled from officers but were swiftly captured, Tull said.
