A 16-year-old San Francisco boy has been arrested in connection with at least one of a recent series of takeover-style robberies of Oakland restaurants, CBS 5 has learned from sources close to the investigation.
The boy, whom one source said confessed his involvement in one of the holdups to police, was already on probation for an armed robbery in Vallejo.
At least two other suspects — including a 15-year-old boy — have been identified and arrest warrants were issued. They were being sought by police, sources said.
Seriously, many of our local restaurants are really suffering right now. Whether or not it’s rational to be afraid to go out to eat in Oakland, people seem to be lately. The restaurant industry isn’t an easy one even in the best of times, so please, support your neighborood entrepreneurs and eat out sometime this week.
UPDATE: It turns out the boy was from West Oakland, not SF.
