Berkeley Police Arrest 3 Women For Pepper-Spray Retail Theft Suspects
Authorities report that three young women have been arrested this week in connection with a string of Berkeley robberies, where the victims were pepper-sprayed.
An investigation by the Berkeley police was initiated a week ago following a series of pepper-spray robberies that occurred on Thursday night within a span of less than an hour.
There were more reports of pepper-spray robberies in Berkeley on Monday and Tuesday nights.
Three individuals were apprehended on Wednesday evening in Union City while driving a stolen vehicle, as confirmed by authorities. This occurred shortly after two additional robbery incidents were reported in Berkeley, which authorities suspect are connected to the same group. Two robberies occurred at different times and locations in the city.
During one of the incidents, a person sustained injuries when they were struck in the face. Preliminary reports indicate that during the incident, the perpetrator forcefully seized the victim’s hair while absconding with their bag.
Three women, aged 19 and 20, have been arrested and identified as Sabrina Wilson, Maya Bozeman-Stewart, and Nyanna Lane Green.
According to jail records, all three women have been arrested on suspicion of carjacking, robbery, conspiracy, receiving stolen property, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
According to court records online, Wilson has already been charged with two counts of robbery in connection to both of Tuesday’s incidents. She is still in custody as of Thursday night. The bail amount was not specified. Wilson’s arraignment is set to take place on Friday morning at the Wiley Manuel Courthouse in Oakland.
According to online jail records, the other two women have been released and are no longer in custody.
The investigation is still ongoing and efforts to resolve the case are continuing.
