Crime Brief

RV robbery arrest

A 25-year-old Mountain View man was arrested last week after he allegedly entered the RV of his ex-girlfriend and took her purse, according to police.

The woman told police that she was in her RV on Wednesday, Nov. 20, asked her ex-boyfriend to leave and he refused, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson. He then allegedly pulled her hair and took her purse, and walked away while police were en route around 2:50 p.m.

While officers were interviewing the woman on the 1200 block of Pear Avenue, the man returned and made his way back inside the RV, Nelson said. Officers attempted to detain the man, but he was able to run away, Nelson said. He was later found and arrested on charges of domestic battery, robbery, criminal threats, resisting arrest and violating a court order. He was not living in the RV and resides elsewhere in Mountain View, Nelson said.

The man was booked into the Santa Clara County Elmwood Correctional Facility and remained in custody without bail as of Tuesday morning.
