Two suspects have been arrested in connection with a carjacking at the San Pablo Lytton Casino earlier this month, according to the San Pablo Police Department.

Early in the morning on Wednesday, Aug. 10, two men in ski masks approached a victim sleeping in a car and pulled a gun on him, police said. They ordered him to drive, then left him in a nearby neighborhood and drove off with his vehicle.

Investigators worked with several local agencies to identify the suspects. Warrants were written and one of the suspects was apprehended just days after the crime, police said.

The other suspect was apprehended at an Oakland residence this morning with help from the SPPD SWAT Team. After a three-hour standoff, the suspect was found hiding in the attic. Police also found a loaded rifle.

The SPPD thanked the Oakland Police Department and Alameda County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in the case, adding, “Most importantly we are thankful to be able to get these two violent individuals off the streets of San Pablo.
