Crime brief: domestic violence arrest


Police arrested a Redwood City man who allegedly robbed his ex-girlfriend at her home in Mountain View, pushing her to the ground and grabbing her phone and the keys to her vehicle, police said.

The 25-year-old suspect reportedly came to her home in the 1900 block of California Street around 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 6, after becoming upset that the victim had not called him back, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson. He took the phone and keys and grabbed her arm and pushed her to the ground during the altercation, Nelson said.

The suspect had previously come to the victim's home without permission since the two had separated, Nelson said.

The suspect was arrested at his home in Redwood City on suspicion of robbery and domestic violence. He was booked into Santa Clara County jail with a bail set at $50,000.
