Oakland Police Source: Detectives Reluctant To Arrest Store Owner Who Foiled Robbery With Gun

February 17, 2021 at 11:54 pm

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — An anonymous police source told KPIX Wednesday that multiple Oakland police detectives and officers didn’t want to arrest the Chinatown store owner who used a handgun to stop a woman from being robbed earlier this week.

The owner of a liquor store in Oakland’s Chinatown — who has not been identified by authorities — intervened to stop the robbery early Monday evening.

At about 5:30 p.m., the store owner saw a woman being robbed of her camera at the corner of Ninth and Franklin. After seeing the woman knocked to the ground, the owner ran out with a gun, ordering the assailant to stop and reportedly firing four shots.

The suspect fled in a vehicle, but when police arrived to investigate the incident, they took the business owner into custody.

According to the anonymous Oakland police officer, “detectives, sergeants and a lieutenant did not think the man should have been booked into jail.” The officer said that the order to arrest the store owner came from ranking members of the OPD at the scene including a captain and a deputy chief.

The anonymous officer said the store owner was held in jail for less than 12 hours and was released by Tuesday afternoon.

The anonymous source said that the store owner fired his gun after the robbery suspects got into their car to flee the scene and nearly hit the victim with the vehicle.
