Suspect Sought in 1 of 6 Chain-Snatch Robberies in Fremont

ID #18-264

Police released photos of a suspect today in an effort to identify the person who allegedly snatched a gold chain from a woman last week, one of six similar robberies in Fremont since the beginning of the month. Police said at 1:40 p.m. May 8 the suspect robbed the woman of her gold chain as she was in the 4100 block of Alder Avenue, near Oliveira Elementary School. The robbery is one of two chain-snatch robberies that police believe are related because the suspect targeted women walking near elementary schools around pick-up time.

Police said the robbery victim was pulled to the ground and was injured by a suspect described as a thin man in his 20s standing 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a black baseball hat, a gray hooded zip-up sweatshirt over a black shirt, light gray sweatpants and black and white Jordan shoes.

Police said since May 1 there have been six robberies involving victims wearing gold chains and that is a recent uptick in those type of robberies. Some of the victims were injured in the robberies. One victim was seriously injured when a suspect tried to rip a necklace off of her when she was at a gas station in the 39900 block of Fremont Boulevard at 4:39 p.m. May 6.

Another victim suffered cuts and scratches when a suspect pushed her to ground as he pulled the chain off her neck. The robbery occurred at 1:40 p.m. May 16 in the area of Gibraltar and Cabrillo drives as the victim was pushing a baby stroller and walking her child home from school.

Police said the suspect was described as a Hispanic man in his early 20s, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall with short black hair and a mustache. He was wearing a dark green jacket and blue jeans.

Another person was out walking with her husband at 10:20 a.m. May 4 when a person came up from behind and tore the chain off her neck. The robbery occurred in the 32700 block of Lake Mead Drive. The suspect was described as a white man, 30 to 35 years old, 6 feet tall with a medium build. Police said he was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and a white cap.

Another person was robbed at 6:10 p.m. May 7 as she answered the door to her home in the 36600 block of Fremont Boulevard. The victim was completing a private party sales transaction through Facebook messenger when she was robbed by a person described as dark-skinned and South Asian Indian. He was wearing a black baseball cap and black clothing.

Another robbery occurred at 7:29 p.m. May 11 as the victim was leaving a grocery store in the 39100 block of Argonaut Way. Police said the suspect was described as a thin black man with a dark complexion, 20 years old and 5 feet 7 inches tall. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a Nike logo across the front, faded light blue jeans and black hightop shoes.

Police said the suspect had an associate with him. The associate was described as a black woman with a dark complexion, 20 years old, 5 feet 2 inches tall with a medium build and black hair in a high bun. She was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, faded blue jeans, tan shoes and she was carrying a multi-colored backpack.
