FREMONT (CBS SF) — A suspect has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery and sexual assault that happened Saturday morning at a store in the Fremont Hub shopping center, police said.

Two officers found the suspect in the 40500 block of Grimmer Boulevard, arrested him and brought him in for questioning by detectives. He was then booked, according to police.

The police department worked all day and into the night to identify a suspect in the case and the investigation is still ongoing, police said.
