OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland police have arrested two people in connection with the daylight armed robbery of nine people waiting for carpool rides into San Francisco.
Police identified one of the suspects to the Oakland Tribune (http://bit.ly/1gWFRka) on Tuesday as 22-year-old Delante Johnson. The other is a 17-year-old boy who police say acknowledged his involvement in the robbery.
The robbery took place around 9 a.m. Monday while the victims and others were standing in line waiting for carpool rides. The robbers — described as three males — made off with cellphones, purses and wallets at gunpoint.
Police say they then fled in a silver Honda. Police later pulled the vehicle over with Johnson and the 17-year-old allegedly inside. The two were later arrested on suspicion of armed robbery.
Police say Johnson has denied involvement in the crime.
