Wanted men arrested for armed robberies
April 15, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Police arrested two men who were wanted in connection with three armed robberies committed over two days near a San Bruno park.

Alexander Leonis, an 18-year-old Daly City resident, was arrested around 10:15 a.m. Sunday near King and Junipero Serra drives and a 16-year-old San Bruno resident was arrested Thursday, according to San Bruno police.

Police had been searching for the men they believe committed the robberies near Commodore Park on Monday, April 7 and Tuesday, April 8, according to police.

The first robbery took place April 7 around 5:37 p.m. on the 1000 block of Cherry Avenue. The victim reported a man approached him on foot with a kitchen knife and stole his laptop then fled toward a nearby apartment complex. Another victim reported he was in the restroom at the park around 9 p.m. when two men cornered him and one brandished a hammer then stole the victim’s cash and other belongings before fleeing on foot, according to police.

Around 10:24 a.m. April 8, one of the two suspects brandished a knife when they approached a third victim near the same park and they stole the victim’s wallet and cellphone before fleeing toward a nearby apartment complex, according to police.

On Wednesday around 9:21 p.m., police were conducting surveillance of the area when they contacted the 16-year-old suspect and found he was carrying a loaded firearm. The juvenile was arrested Thursday and charged with possessing a loaded handgun and armed robbery, according to police.

Continued police investigation led to the arrest of Leonis as the second suspect in Daly City, according to police.
