After releasing video surveillance of the Walmart gold chain robbery that occurred on October 4th, a tip was received Friday morning that led to the arrest of an 18 year old adult male. The female counterpart is still outstanding.
Fremont Fire Dept. requested assistance at an address on Canfield Drive after responding to a report of an explosion at the residence. The residence is very well known for drug use and probation violations. Today a resident attempted to extract Òhash oilÓ using butane canisters in a closed room. The room also housed the water heater and it appears that the flame from the water heater ignited the butane gas in the room, causing an explosion. The adult male was transported to a trauma center for burns. A female juvenile teen who was also slightly injured was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The Major Crimes Supervisor was notified and Agent Young assumed the investigation.
A residential burglary was reported on the 39900 block of Stevenson Common where five bowling balls were stolen from the garage.
The suspect from last nightÕs robbery at Washington/680 (#131011005) was at it again tonight. The suspect targeted another Asian female, this time at Aberdeen Cafˇ located on the 46800 block of Warm Springs Blvd. The female victim was visiting from out of the country and had a large amount of cash in her purse. The victim was having dinner with a group of friends. The suspect, a 41 year old adult male, walked in and sat down at a table behind the victim. He then took the opportunity and grabbed the victimÕs purse and ran out the front door to his gray 2001 Toyota Camry. When he tried to drive away however, friends of the victim blocked the parking lot exit. He then parked his vehicle and fled on foot. Ofc. Taylor arrived and located the suspect vehicle in the lot. Ofc. Sasser arrived and located the suspect walking on Mission Blvd. The suspect was identified by witnesses and placed under arrest. The purse from tonightÕs victim was located inside the vehicle and returned to her. Ofc. Wilson recognized the similarity from this case to his robbery from the prior night (680/Washington) so he picked up his victim and the suspect and his vehicle were positively identified for last nightÕs incident. Several officers are following up on additional cases that the suspect may be responsible for.

A male called 9-1-1 claiming he was inside the restroom at Los Dos Amigos. He told dispatchers that he had witnessed another male brandish two handguns. The suspect was described as a male adult with long hair wearing a dark shirt. As officers arrived to check the bar, they witnessed three males exit the back door, one of whom matched the suspect description. Officers attempted to make contact, however all three males failed to comply and re-entered the bar. Moments later, one of those males (later identified as a 31 year old adult male) ran out the front door and attempted to escape. Officers pursue on foot and catch the adult male near Bay St. and Papazian. Officers re-contact Los Dos Amigos security and they confirm a male matching the description of the possibly armed suspect is still inside. Security was unable to identify how many other associates the male had inside the bar. Mutual aid is requested from Union City and Newark. The bar was evacuated and all the patrons were identified. In the end, no guns were located, no victims, and no crime. The adult male who ran was found to have a felony warrant for narcotics. Ofc.
