Antioch Police

On Wednesday at 9:30 pm, the Antioch Police Department received a 9-1-1 call regarding an in-progress home invasion robbery that was occurring at an occupied residence in the 2000 block of Goldpine Wy.

It was reported that (3) subjects armed with guns had forced their way into the victim’s home and demanded their property. The suspects had fled just prior to Antioch Police Officers arriving on scene but a description of their vehicle was broadcast to neighboring agencies.

Brentwood Police located the vehicle and attempted to stop a vehicle matching the one involved in this crime and it fled from their Officers at a high rate of speed. After a lengthy pursuit the vehicle was disabled, and it drove off of the roadway on Bixler Rd just south of Marsh Creek Rd.

According to Sergeant Matthew Harger, three occupants inside the car were immediately arrested without incident while a fourth occupant fled on foot into a nearby field.

An extensive search of the area was conducted with the assistance of the Brentwood PD, Contra Costa Sheriff’s Department, and the Oakley PD. The outstanding suspect was eventually located a short distance away and arrested without incident.

The subject was attempting to hitch-hike near the Old River Bridge in the Town of Discovery Bay when Brentwood Police officers took him into custody at gunpoint.

Harger said two handguns and a rifle were recovered at the scene along with all of the victim’s property that had just been stolen.

The four suspects were arrested for numerous felonies to include robbery, burglary, kidnapping, possession of illegal firearms, evading the police, and possession of stolen property.

The three adults were booked into the Martinez Detention Facility and the minor was booked into Juvenile Hall. This preliminary information is made available by the Field Services Division.

Arrested include:

  • Keith Slaughter, 18-year-old
  • Brian Williams, 18-year-old
  • Qwest Hewitt, 19-year-old
  • Male Juvenile, 16-year-old

It might be a nice neighborhood for Antioch, but there is nothing upscale in Antioch. Throw the book at these young punks.

Courtney Johnson Aug 9, 2019 - 8:41 am

There’s no such thing as upscale anymore! The world is full of evil everywhere!

Elizabeth Aug 9, 2019 - 12:35 pm

I drive through these “upscale” neighborhoods and I see Section 8 people milling around. Look like something “Straight From Compton.”

Anyone who home invades is scum of the earth and should be dealt with accordingly.

What’s happening to any respect for anything ?

Hopefully the courts will sentence to the maximum!

The name of the scumbag 16 year old should have been made public. This idiotic law to keep minor criminals’ names confidential, has got to stop!

Their* brains

Any neighborhood in Antioch, even if it’s supposedly one of the “good” ones, has issues. You need monitored security, cameras, an effective Neighborhood Watch, and reinforced doors. A good doorbell cam is just a start. It’s the depressing reality.

Ericson Aug 8, 2019 - 5:58 pm

If four punks forced their way into our house, there would be four dead bodies lying on the floor in the marble-floored entryway awaiting the arrival of the police and the coroner. My wife would get the bucket and mop!

Shut up Aug 8, 2019 - 7:55 pm


Simonpure Aug 9, 2019 - 7:15 am

I’m right there with you Ericson…these punks got off easy.

dennis Aug 9, 2019 - 10:13 am

Damn right Ericson my German Shepard would have some new chew toys to bad that home owner did not just kill them would have been easier

Nikkol Aug 8, 2019 - 9:21 pm

Was it necessary to add “marbled floor”?As if anyone cares. lol Just makes you look iike a pompous brag. Much like your “I’d shoot them all dead in one shot with my eyes shut and hands behind my back blah blah blah” comment did. Again, no one cares.

Hjo Aug 9, 2019 - 11:07 am

You cared

Rose Del Vecchio Aug 9, 2019 - 7:11 pm

Who’s braggin’? It’s very easy to wipe up the blood off a marbled floor after it has been sealed properly. Other materials can be too porous!

Tammy Aug 9, 2019 - 11:45 pm

Is there a law against being “pompous?” I don’t think so! If you have it, flaunt it! No big deal! And YOU obviously cared and I care as well. By the way, ALL my bathrooms have gorgeous Italian marble floors and shower walls!

dennis Aug 8, 2019 - 10:54 pm

These little piece of shits ? deserve to die

Republic Uprise Aug 9, 2019 - 7:28 am

Personally I think your all idiots if you want to solve this problem let’s start at the top of our political cabinets and work down from there starting with pay cuts and let’s get some money back into our communitys like a center that is open everyday for young adults to go to. Oh wait your all to scared to go out in public because there may be an active shooter well maybe then some of those political pay cuts can help fund the mental health system that has failed miserably because of lames like all of you. Look at the reason why we have these problems and think real hard what problems we face now and in the future are gov’t created. Duh

I wonder if the occupants knew the intruders or vice versa. Interesting to learn the whole story. Random intrusion is very very rare.

Melanie Aug 9, 2019 - 10:04 am

Home invasion used to be ripping off drug dealers. These days, it could happen to anyone

dennis Aug 9, 2019 - 10:17 am

Youth centers won’t help shit these lazy garbage ass wastes of lives deserve death they will never amount to shit

Wayne Aug 9, 2019 - 12:41 pm

If said ghetto sewer rats can get through my thick, reinforced front or back door or my thick plexiglass windows, then there will be a big surprise waiting for them. Today, one has to always be prepared for these types of encounters.

Coastrider711 Aug 10, 2019 - 5:49 am

Right…you like to play army too,huh
