The Emeryville PD issued two Nixle alerts this morning. One alerting the public to a man who was struck and injured by an Amtrak commuter train, the other of a strong-armed robbery where the culprits utilized Ford GoBikes to flee the scene.

At about 8:38 p.m. last night, Emeryville Police Department received an urgent call from a citizen alerting them to a robbery victim at 48th and San Pablo Ave. The suspects, in possession of the victim’s purse, fled north across the Oakland border turning eastbound on 53rd St.

Emeryville officers communicated the suspects’ descriptions to the Oakland Police who were able to locate and detain three suspects.

One adult male and two juveniles in their late teens were arrested for robbery and assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury. The officers transported 18-year-old Damontae Scott of Stockton to Santa Rita County Jail for booking, and transported the two juveniles to Alameda County Juvenile Hall.

EMS transported the victim to a local hospital for treatment of what we’re considered non-life-threatening injuries.

Since this is breaking news, we will update this story as new information becomes available.
