ATM Robbery Suspects Arrested

Submitted By Geneva Bosques, Fremont PD

On April 9, 2014 at approximately 1:05 a.m. a 67 year old adult victim was robbed at gunpoint while using the Bank of America ATM located at 40820 Fremont Blvd. While the victim was using the ATM, a carload of suspects drove up and parked adjacent to where he was standing. The main suspect exited the vehicle, pointed a handgun at the victim and demanded his wallet. The victim, fearing he would be shot, threw his wallet to the suspect. The suspect retrieved the wallet and the vehicle sped off. Approximately one hour later two of the suspects used the victimÕs credit cards at the 7-11 located at 46650 Mohave Dr in Fremont.

On Tuesday, April 15, 2014, in an attempt to identify the suspects, the Fremont Police DepartmentÕs Crimes Against Person(s) Unit released surveillance photos and video on Nixle and through the use of our official social media channels.

On April 16, 2014, during the early morning hours, an unrelated Fremont Police investigation led to the identity of the suspects. Physical evidence, witness statements, suspect confessions and other evidence tied these suspects and one other suspect to the robbery. The Fremont Police Department Crimes Against Persons, General Assignment and Street Crimes UnitÕs all deployed to actively work the case today. Following a search warrant that was served at a residence on Farrol Ave in Union City, the following three persons were arrested:

- Prabhleen Singh - 22 year old, Fremont resident, suspect with the gun who robbed the victim.
- Manjot Dhillon - 24 year old, Union City resident, suspect who drove the get-away vehicle.
- Juvenile - a 17 year old male (suspect who also used the victimÕs credit cards at 7-11).

The suspects were arrested on a variety of felony charges including robbery, elder abuse, possession of stolen property and felon in possession of ammunition. Singh and Dhillon were booked into the Fremont Jail. The 17 year old juvenile suspect was booked into Juvenile Hall. The vehicle used during the robbery, along with other items associated to the crime, were also located and booked into evidence.

The Fremont Police Department is still actively investigating this case. Anyone who has knowledge of the suspects and/or crime is encouraged to contact the Fremont Police Department Investigative Unit, case agent Det. Gebhardt at 510-790-6954 or Mgebhardt@Fremont.gov.
