A 20-year-old Oakland man is in custody for resisting arrest after he tried to steal alcohol from Safeway on Saturday afternoon, said Lieutenant Herb Walters of Dublin Police.
“Around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, deputies responded to a call of a theft in progress at the Safeway located at 7499 Dublin Boulevard,” said Walters. “The male saw the deputies and ran from the store, hopping a wrought-iron fence east of the store near the [Interstate 680] freeway.”
According to Walters, one of the deputies was injured as he tried to jump the fence during the pursuit.
“The deputy, whose leg was injured, was transported to ValleyCare, treated for his injuries and was released,” he commented.
Walters said the suspect was on probation for a weapons-related offense.
