SAN LEANDRO — A man arrested a sixth time this year in Alameda County is in jail now for a carjacking. His latest arrest was made by San Leandro Chief of Police Jeff Tudor, while was stopping for coffee on his way to work.

Aaron M. Sexton, 20 of Oakland, is accused of shoving a woman in her 70s to the ground and robbing her.

Although she was not injured, her keys and wallet were stolen. Fortunately, the police chief was driving nearby at the time.

This crime occurred on August 11 at 6:40 a.m., near Peet’s Coffee at 1500 East 14th Street. A dispatcher was receiving 911 calls, as Tudor was stopping there.

Several persons also reported the robbery and a failed carjacking to him directly. Sexton was apparently unable to start the victim’s car and started running away.

Tudor pursued Sexton and coordinated arriving patrol officers in taking him into custody.

The suspect was nabbed one block away at 7:04 a.m. He was booked into Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, where he remains in custody in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Sexton faces charges for carjacking and second-degree robbery. In addition, he is charged with committing a violent crime on a vulnerable person. He is scheduled to appear for a plea hearing on August 21 at the East County Hall of Justice.

His prior arrests this year were for assault, illicit drug possession, DUIs, driving without a license, and trespassing.
