Home Invasion Robbery Update
Submitted By Lt. Henry Kwong, Milpitas PD
On August 17, 2013 at 2:45 a.m., Milpitas Police Department officers responded to a robbery at a home on Pinard Street. The officers learned two male suspects were armed with guns, entered the home, tied up the victims, and stole property from the home between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. The victims were eventually able to free themselves and call for help.
Earlier, at 2:18 a.m., a vigilant Milpitas Police Department officer stopped a vehicle on Devon Place near North Park Victoria Drive, and two males ran from the vehicle while two females remained in the vehicle. Based on the subsequent information from the report of the robbery on Pinard Street, the officers on scene surmised the occupants of the stopped vehicle were possibly associated to the robbery.
Milpitas Police Department detectives were summoned to assist with the investigation while other officers continued the extensive search for the two males who fled. The detectives later concluded the two females, Ms. Bianca Pedemonte of Bay Point and a juvenile, resident of Stockton, were involved in the robbery and arrested them. Ms. Bianca Pedemonte was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail, and the female juvenile was booked into the Santa Clara County Juvenile Probation Department.
As the investigation continued, our detectives determined Mr. Brian Fosselman and Mr. Lejon Mabon were also responsible for the robbery. Extensive surveillance was conducted at different locations throughout the bay area in an attempt to apprehend them.
On August 22, 2013, our detectives located and arrested Mr. Brian Fosselman, transient, at a residence in San Jose with the assistance of personnel from the San Jose Police Department. He was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for robbery.
On August 28, 2013, our detectives located and arrested Mr. Lejon Mabon at a residence in Stockton with the assistance of personnel from the Stockton Police Department and from the U.S. Marshals Service. He was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for robbery and a parole violation warrant.
All of the suspects involved in the home invasion robbery in Milpitas on August 17, 2013 have been arrested, and detectives are continuing the investigation and working with other law enforcement agencies in order to determine if the suspects are also responsible for other similar crimes in the bay area.
