FREMONT (KRON) — Fremont Police Detectives have arrested two suspects in connection with gold chain robberies.
On Friday Sept. 11 in the vicinity of Maybird Circle in the Ardenwood neighborhood two robbery incidents were reported police say.
The first at 2:36 p.m. when a 43-year-old female victim was walking in the area of Maybird Circle and ShattuckDrive.
She stopped at a corner and a suspect ran up to her and said “hello” and grabbed the gold chain from her neck.
Then at 5:10 p.m. the same day, a 34-year-old adult female victim was walking in the area of Maybird Circle and Diamond Common when a male ran up from behind her.
The suspect grabbed a chain from around her neck and shoved her to the ground.
In both cases the suspect fled to a nearby get-a-way car that witnesses describe as a silver Nissan sedan with rear damage.
One witness managed to snap a picture of the car.
On Tuesday, Sept. 15 around 12:30 p.m. a detective from the Fremont Police Crimes Against Persons Unit was checking the area of Maybird Circle when he saw a vehicle that matched the description witnesses gave.
Back up was called and detectives conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle which was occupied by two males.
Both males were later arrested and booked into Fremont Jail for the two Sept. 11 robberies.
