OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Oakland police said they arrested six people this week in connection with three separate armed robberies.

The first robbery occurred near Alcatraz and Telegraph Avenue around 9:45 p.m. on Monday, according to police spokeswoman Johnna Watson.

Officers were able to detain and arrest three juvenile suspects after the victim and witnesses directed them to the AC Transit bus the suspects had fled to.

Police recovered the victim’s property, an iPad and cellphone, as well as a replica gun from one of the suspects.

On Tuesday, around 9:15 p.m., victims in the 200 block of 27th Avenue were robbed by three suspects armed with handguns.

One suspect struck a victim with a handgun in a struggle, causing the gun to discharge and sending a bullet through a window of a house, Watson said. No one was struck or injured by the bullet.

Police were able to arrest two men carrying the victims’ cellphone and other property, as well as an illegally owned handgun, Watson said. A third suspect is outstanding.

On Thursday, a victim was robbed and assaulted in the 1900 block of 14th Avenue around 10:20 p.m. by two suspects armed with handguns. One of the suspects struck the victim with a gun during the robbery, Watson said.

The suspects fled on bicycles, but police were able to apprehend one male suspect. The victims’ belongings were recovered.
