During the evening hours of February 8, 2012, the "Corner Store Market & Liquor" (located at 40795 Grimmer Boulevard in Fremont) was robbed by two suspects. Both suspects were wearing dark colored "hoodies" pulled over their heads and faces. One suspect pointed a firearm at the clerk and demanded money from the register. The second suspect grabbed the money from the register and the two fled on foot.
During the investigation, a fifteen year old male resident of Fremont was identified as the suspect holding the gun during the robbery. On July 6, 2012, the juvenile suspect was arrested for a separate and unrelated residential burglary. The burglary occurred at a residence in Fremont back in May. At the time of his arrest the juvenile was found to be in possession of a loaded firearm. The juvenile was arrested on a host of charges related to the burglary/firearm and booked into Juvenile Hall in San Leandro.
On July 31, 2012, the juvenile was charged in Juvenile Court (Juvenile Justice Center in San Leandro) with the February 8th robbery and for the personal use of a deadly or dangerous weapon in the commission of a felony. The juvenile is currently in custody behind the robbery and residential burglary charges.
