Upon arrival, officers located the victim detaining a female subject. A male believed to be her accomplice had fled on foot into a nearby residential neighborhood. The victim claimed he reported his vehicle stolen on Dec. 1 and observed the vehicle being driving around.
He pursued the vehicle and collided with it at the Asilomar/Rock Island location, where he confronted the male and female occupants of his stolen vehicle. The male subject fled on foot. When the victim began chasing him, the subject fired several rounds into the air with a handgun. Area residents began advising that a man was running from yard to yard through several neighborhoods.
After an extensive pursuit, the subject was eventually apprehended, arrested and found in possession of a firearm and narcotic-related items. Inside the stolen vehicle was property found to have been stolen from an unreported burglary that had occurred earlier in the day.
The 25-year-old male subject, an Antioch resident, was charged with auto theft, possession of stolen property, parole violation plus weapons- and drug-related offenses. The 30-year-old female subject, also an Antioch resident, was charged with auto theft, possession of stolen property and burglary tools, and probation violation. The property was positively identified by the victim and returned.
The case is still under investigation.
Dec. 8, 6 a.m. Detectives of the Antioch Police Department, with the assistance of the Antioch Police Department SWAT team, served search warrants simultaneously at two residences in the 4300 block of Wallaby Court.
The warrants were the result of an investigation into a series of armed robberies of pizza delivery drivers that had been occurring in the neighborhood over the last month. The drivers had been robbed at knifepoint of their pizzas, cash and personal property.
A $250,000 Ramey Warrant was obtained for the arrest of 25-year-old Rashied Ali Hudson when the investigation identified him as one of two suspects in the crimes. Hudson was identified as the suspect who was armed with the knife during all the robberies. He was located during the search warrant effort, taken into custody without incident and transferred to the Martinez Detention Facility.
Numerous pieces of evidence were located and collected during the searches. Detectives have identified a person of interest as the second suspect in this case and are working to collect further evidence. Those with information should call Detective Santiago Castillo at 925-779-6933.
