At approximately 2:45 a.m., five juveniles approached an adult male who was jogging on Callan Avenue, from Bancroft Avenue. The group of juveniles ran after the ÒjoggerÓ and demanded his property. The ÒjoggerÓ tried to run faster to get away but the suspects caught up with him and one of them punched him in the face several times. The victim was able to break free from the suspects and immediately reported the incident to our dispatch center. Officers arrived and located the suspects in the area where the crime occurred. The victim confirmed the officers had the correct suspects stopped and they were arrested for the incident.

At approximately 11 p.m., a burglary was committed at a business in the 500 block of Lewelling Boulevard. The incident was recorded on a surveillance camera and the footage was reviewed. The footage captured a male stealing items from a room. On April 20, approximately 8 a.m., officers were dispatched back to the location for the report of a suspicious person. They arrived and determined it was the same suspect who committed the burglary on 04/18/14. The suspect Oscar Trejo of Oakland was arrested for burglary. Two IPads were stolen from the previous burglary but they were not recovered.
At approximately 8:00 p.m., one of our officers attempted to make a traffic enforcement stop in the 2000 block of Marina Boulevard. The driver drove away recklessly and the officer chose not to pursue him. Moments later the officer observed the driver running on Marina Boulevard near the Southbound Interstate 880 onramp. Officers converged on the area and they started a canine search. Jonathan Valasqez of Castro Valley was found hiding and he was taken into custody.
