By Lieutenant T. Brooks, Antioch Police Community Policing Bureau
On Friday, December 21 at approximately 12:54 a.m., Antioch Police officers were dispatched to an armed robbery at the Bonfare Market at 907 West 10th Street in Antioch. As officers were responding to the store an officer noticed a vehicle leaving the area. Officers lost sight of the vehicle, but found it moments later unoccupied, crashed, and on fire on Highway 4 behind the 600 block of West Tregallas Road.
Officers quickly set up a perimeter and located a male in a yard in the 2700 block of D Street. After a brief struggle, the male was taken into custody and later transported to a local hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries. The male will be booked at the Martinez Detention Facility on charges of robbery and assaulting a police officer. The investigation is ongoing.
