OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Police in Oakland on Tuesday arrested two suspects in connection with an early morning home invasion robbery and assault, according to authorities.
Police responded at 2:39 a.m. to the home invasion involving three suspects on the 4600 block of Sequoyah Road, near the Sequoyah Country Club, according to police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson.
Two men who live there, one in his 70s and the other in his 80s, were assaulted by the suspects after they broke in.
The three male suspects then stole the victims’ car and fled, Watson said.
Two suspects were arrested just after 4 a.m. by Oakland patrol officers in the vicinity of Mountain Boulevard and Sequoyah Road.
The suspects were detained in a vehicle that was reported in carjacking Monday afternoon in Oakland. Investigators additionally recovered loss items taken from the Sequoyah Road residence and a replica firearm from the stolen vehicle.
The victim’s vehicle taken early Tuesday morning from the Sequoyah Road residence is still outstanding. The car is described as a 2001 Cadillac sedan, champagne/gold in color with a California license plate 4TLA277.
That vehicle was recovered early Tuesday evening.
The victim in his 70s sustained moderate injuries and was transported to a local hospital and has since been released. The second victim, in his 80s, had minor injuries and was medically treated at the scene.
One of the victims was still wearing his bloodied shirt as he told KPIX 5 about the violent crime.
He said he’s been targeted by robbers before.
“Last time they came they got my ring and they got my watch and then they got a piece of old Chinese jade and then they left,” said the man.
Police investigators are still searching for additional suspects in this case. Anyone who has information related to the case is encouraged to contact the Oakland Police Department at (510) 238-3426.
