Antioch Teens Arrested in Suspected Robbery

by ECT

The San Francisco Police Department announced the arrest of four Antioch teens on November 20 in connection with a suspected robbery.

According to police, on Friday, November 20, 2020, at approximately 4:15 PM, San Francisco Police officers assigned to the Central Station Plainclothes Unit were patrolling the area of Washington and Montgomery Streets when they observed two suspects violently rob a 55-year-old female victim.

Officers observed two suspects, later identified as 18-year-old Reginald Soriano and 19-year-old London Evans, both of Antioch, exit a vehicle and begin following the victim. Soriano and Evans approached the victim from behind. Evans grabbed the victim’s purse, violently ripped it from her shoulder and both suspects fled on foot. The suspects ran towards a waiting beige Mercedes, occupied by two other male suspects, both juveniles. Officers approached Soriano and Evans on foot. While being taken into custody, Soriano removed a firearm from his waistband and threw it to the ground. Evans attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended on the 400 block of Jackson Street. Officers prevented the vehicle from fleeing. The juvenile suspects in the vehicle were taken into custody without incident.

Officers searched the vehicle and located several stolen items that linked them to a robbery that occurred in Oakland. In addition to the stolen items, the vehicle was equipped with stolen license plates.

Soriano was booked at San Francisco County Jail on charges of robbery (211 PC), conspiracy (182(a)(1) PC), receiving stolen property (496(a) PC), vehicle registration fraud (4463 CVC), and multiple firearms violations. Evans was booked at San Francisco County Jail on charges of robbery (211 PC), conspiracy (182(a)(1) PC), receiving stolen property(496(a) PC), multiple firearms violations, and resisting arrest (148(a)(1) PC).

The two juveniles, both 17 year-olds from Antioch, were taken to the Juvenile Justice Center and booked on charges of robbery (211 PC), conspiracy (182(a)(1) PC, and receiving stolen property 496(a) PC. One of the juvenile suspects was also charged with driving without a license (12500(a) CVC).

While arrests have been made this remains an open investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the SFPD 24-hour tip line at 1-415-575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.

Just more failed parenting in Antioch. Some times I think the parents should have to do time as well. Losers….

Think of how scary that must have been for the woman. She’s forever “damaged”, because going on, she’ll always be afraid to walk alone, she’ll forever be anxious around teens that look similar to these jerks, and she’ll always be looking over her shoulder. I feel soo badly for this poor woman. I’m glad the police were there to intervene. However, I’m sure these teens will get nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

If you’re going to participate in this type of criminal activity you better think about the consequences. At least he had enough sense to drop the weapon. Could have been another unfortunate incident the police would have been blamed for if they had to use lethal force. Back the blue.

These may very well be the same guys who robbed my GF in Brentwood last spring. Same exact MO too bad the Brentwood police are so lazy they need to take lessons from these officers.

Covid will bail them out. smh

This is the very reason people must arm themselves and know how to use the weapon. There are glasses one can wear which show you who is walking behind you. Buy them and wear them. Always expect the worst and be prepared. These are weird times. If you’re elderly, do NOT walk alone anywhere and women should NOT carry purses … carry a walking stick.

Soriano blew the operation with bringing a gun. They all could have walked out after booking on COVID release (non violent crime) but not now.
