Teens arrested in Los Altos carjacking


Two boys, ages 16 and 15, were arrested Tuesday in connection with a carjacking last Monday in a condominium parking garage in which the owner of the car was assaulted and injured, Los Altos police said.

The initial call came to Los Altos police at about 10:45 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, saying a 66-year-old man was assaulted in a garage in the 100 block of Second Street. The man had just parked his car, police said, when the two

boys confronted the man and a 64-year-old woman with him and demanded the car's keys as well as personal property. The pair assaulted the car's driver, and took items from both that man and the woman, police said, and drove away in their car.

Less than two hours later, at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, the stolen vehicle was found in the 3700 block of Benton Street in the city of Santa Clara. Police in that city went there, and found both suspects with the vehicle. Both were booked into Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of felony carjacking and felony robbery.

Anyone with information about this carjacking is asked to contact Los Altos police Detective Sgt. Brian Jeffrey or Detective Aimee Major at (650) 947-2770. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call the Los Altos Police Department Tip-Line at (650) 947-2774.
