Submitted By Fremont PD

On September 27, 2012 at 1:30 a.m., a 24 year old female victim was robbed at gunpoint in a room at the Motel 6 on Fremont Blvd. The suspect robbed the victim of money and the victims' cell phone. The suspect fled the motel in an unknown vehicle.

The Fremont Police Department Robbery Unit investigated the case. Through that investigation, the suspect was positively identified as Alex Philips (18 year old adult male; Milpitas resident). The Milpitas Police Department Detective Unit assisted in identifying and locating Philips.

On October 4, 2012, Philips was located and arrested in Milpitas, by members of the Fremont Police Department Investigative Unit. Physical evidence from the robbery and cocaine were located during the arrest.

On October 9, 2012, Philips was charged with the felony robbery. Philips is still in custody and scheduled for subsequent court dates later in October 2012.
