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.

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.
