Juvenile Unsuccessfully Attempts Robbery

MILPITAS —  According to the Milpitas Police Department, an attempted robbery occurred on May 20th at the 169 Block of W. Capitol Avenue.  The victim was approached by a seemingly innocent 14-year-old boy.

According to police records, a 14-year-old suspect approached a male victim after he exited his vehicle and yelled at the victim empty his pockets. After being confused about what the juvenile’s  intentions were, the juvenile began to order the victim to reopen his car door.

Police added that the victim, fearing for his safety, got back inside his vehicle, locked his car and called the police.  But this wasn’t the end of the confrontation.  Angry about having the victim ignore him and start to drive away, the juvenile hit the windshield causing it to crack.

Once identified by officers responding to the area, located near the VTA Light Rail station at the Great Mall, both a male and female juvenile tried to run from the responding officers towards the VTA train platform. Both suspects were detained. Further investigation determined the juvenile male was responsible for the robbery and in possession of metal knuckles.

Subsequently, the male suspect was booked into the Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall for attempted robbery, vandalism, illegal possession of metal knuckles, resisting arrest and violating curfew. The juvenile female was cited for resisting arrest, and violating curfew. She was released to her parents. Anyone with any information regarding this investigation or other similar incidents occurring in our city is encouraged to call the Milpitas Police Department at (408) 586-2400.
