Alameda police arrested two people Tuesday in connection with an Aug. 18 armed robbery and attack on a dozen young men in the parking lot at the Alameda Point Ferry Terminal, according to the Alameda Police Department.
An adult man and a male juvenile, both Oakland residents, were taken into custody without incident Sept. 18, police said. Investigators also executed search warrants at two Oakland locations and seized evidence related to the incident, police said.
A second adult male, already in custody on an unrelated charge, has been identified as a suspect in the case as well, they said.
One suspect, Steven Pham of Oakland, was arrested Aug. 18 when police officers spotted a vehicle nearby that matched a description provided by the victims, APD Lt. Ted Horlbeck said last month. A handgun was recovered at the time of the arrest, he said.
According to an earlier report of the attack, the victims — all but one of them Alameda residents — were robbed and several of them pistol whipped in the parking lot at 3000 Main St. The young men had left a party and gathered after midnight in the terminal's parking lot when they were confronted by men from another group also gathered there.
One of the attackers first asked for a cigarette, then ordered the victims at gunpoint to lie on the ground, Horlbeck said shortly after the August incident. Three to five attackers robbed the group and struck several of the victims with handguns, he said. Four of the victims were later treated at a hospital for their injuries and then released, he said.
