Submitted By Geneva Bosques, Fremont PD

An 18-year-old Fremont man has been arrested in connection with a recent carjacking incident that took place in the cityÕs Northgate/Warwick area.

The crime occurred on Tuesday, June 6 when a victim was carjacked near Darwin and Denham drives in North Fremont. The victim told arriving officers the suspect was black man with a handgun. Investigators immediately started following. On Tuesday, June 13, patrol officers found the carjacked vehicle unoccupied near Northgate Community Park. Members of the Special Investigations Unit setup surveillance on the vehicle.

Eventually, someone drove the stolen vehicle into the Cabrillo neighborhood and additional officers responded to assist. A CHP Air Unit also helped. At approximately 9:35 p.m. Fremont officers conducted a high-risk stop of the vehicle and detained three occupants. All three subjects were brought to the Fremont Police Department for questioning. The carjacking victim identified one of the subjects as the suspect who committed the carjacking.

Robbery detectives obtained a search warrant of the suspectÕs residence and located additional evidence. Solomon Howard, 18, of Fremont, was arrested and booked on suspicion of armed carjacking.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Fremont Police Investigative Unit at (510) 790-6900.
