SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Two men and a woman have been arrested in connection with prostitution and robbery at a San Jose motel and kidnapping a pizza delivery person in October, a San Jose police spokesman said.

Saul David Garcia, 20, Antonio Dejesus Moya, 19, and Javona Washington, 18, all of Sacramento, were captured last Tuesday by San Jose police, according to police Officer Albert Morales.

Each was arrested on suspicion of carjacking, kidnapping and robbery with the use of a firearm, Morales said.

Last month, the three allegedly ran a prostitution scheme out of a San Jose motel for three days, Morales said.

On Oct. 19, they allegedly robbed a customer at gunpoint, tried to carjack his vehicle and then moved their sex-for-hire operation to another motel, Morales said.

On Oct. 22, the three conspired to commit a carjacking by ordering a pizza from a restaurant and when the delivery person arrived, they demanded his keys, forced him into his car and kidnapped him, according to Morales.

While driving away in the delivery person’s car, one of the suspects fired a shot, according to Morales.

The trio later dropped the deliveryman off on a freeway and a couple of days later police in Fairfield located the person’s car abandoned at a motel, Morales said.

The three are also suspected of robbing a bank in San Joaquin County while running a prostitution scheme there, Morales said.
