Three armed robbers are in jail after a brief pursuit by Emeryville Police on Thanksgiving according to a report provided by EPD Sergeant Pablo Rojas.

At approximately 11:30 p.m., Emeryville Police Officers responded to the area of 40th and Hollis on the report of an attempted armed robbery of an individual. The victim was able to provide officers with a description of the suspect and vehicle they were in.

Officers attempted an enforcement stop of a vehicle that matched this description and a brief pursuit across the Oakland border ensued.

After the speeding vehicle collided with a parked car, one of the three occupants fled on foot. During the foot pursuit, the fleeing suspect discarded an object which was recovered and determined to be a loaded firearm.



Officers were able to track down and apprehend the fleeing suspect. The other two suspects that remained in the vehicle were treated for injuries sustained as a result of the collision.

They were all three arrested and charged with felonies including attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit a felony, resisting arrest, multiple gun charges and felony evading.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact The Emeryville Police Department Investigations Unit at 510-596-3700.
