Over the next week and a half, Roseville Police Department’s Crime Suppression Unit (CSU) searched for the outstanding suspect at several locations in Roseville and the Sacramento area. Early Saturday morning, they found out that he was traveling south through the San Diego area, and notified law enforcement in that area to detain him. The 28-year-old Roseville man, was arrested on a Placer County warrant charging him with assault with a firearm and several other related charges. He was taken to the San Diego County Jail pending transfer back to Placer County to face charges. We appreciate the determination of our Crime Suppression Unit to find the outstanding suspect, our law enforcement partners who assisted, and especially the witnesses who reported the initial attack. They helped send a message that such violence will not be tolerated in our community.

The driver, a 22-year-old Rio Linda man, was arrested. The car, a 1995 Honda Civic, was a classic “Honda Hunter Special”—the kind of older sedan favored by car thieves because they’re relatively easy to steal with a shaved key. We always recommend that the owners of such good older cars protect them with a Club-type steering wheel lock. (2017-13022)
