ATM Robbery Arrest
Submitted By Fremont PD
On April 29, 2013 at 8:52 p.m., a 38 year old male was robbed while attempting to use the ATM at the Wells Fargo located on Paseo Padre Pkwy. Suspect Kamaljit Ghag approached the victim from behind, demanded his money, told the victim she had a gun and motioned with her right hand in her right sweater pocket. Ghag took an undisclosed amount of money from the victim and fled the area. It was later learned that fifteen minutes prior to that robbery Ghag attempted to steal an iPhone from a separate victim (a 47 y/o male) who was walking in the area of Liberty/Capitol.
The case was actively investigated by the Fremont Police Department Robbery Unit. Video surveillance and other investigative leads led to Ghag being identified as the suspect in both cases. On May 8, 2013, Ghag was arrested in Hayward, Ca. Upon arrest, Ghag was found to be in possession of a driver's license and social security card in the name of another person (a 33 y/o female). When contacted, that victim stated her purse had been stolen while in Berkeley, Ca two weeks prior.
On May 9th, 2013, Ghag was charged with felony Robbery and two counts of felony Possession of Stolen Property (Fremont Court House).
