Union City, California — On 01.31.2020 at about 6:48 P.M. officers from the Fremont Police Department responded the Sephora Store (43500 Block of Christy St. Fremont Ca.) for what was reported by store employees as an in-progress robbery. Store employees advised that three suspects (later identified as suspects Stephon Tobias, Rayduan Lindsay, and Cameron Standley) had entered the store with garbage bags, filled the garbage bags with approximately $19,000 worth of merchandise, and fled the store in a black colored SUV. Fremont Police Officers located the suspect vehicle on northbound Interstate 880. The suspect vehicle (being driven by Tobias) did not pull over and instead fled at a high rate of speed with its lights turned off. A pursuit was initiated in an attempt to arrest the occupants. The pursuit lasted approximately 10 miles and ultimately ended in Union City.
As the pursuit entered Union City, Officers from the Union City Police Department responded to assist. The chase ended when the suspect vehicle entered the end of a cul-de-sac on Balmoral St in Union City. The suspect vehicle drove onto the front yard of a residence, nearly colliding with an occupied home. Officers from the Fremont and Union City Police Departments began conducting a high-risk stop of the vehicle and occupants. During this encounter, the suspect vehicle was completely turned around and was facing the police cars head-on. Officers exited their vehicles and gave the three occupants verbal commands. The driver, Tobias, then proceeded to collide with several police vehicles. Fremont Police Officer Darryl Manrique feared he was going to be run over by the suspect vehicle, so he discharged his service weapon at the driver in an attempt to stop the vehicle. Only the driver of the suspect vehicle was struck by gunfire. The driver has been identified as Stephon Tobias a 30-year-old Oakland resident. Tobias received a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his upper body.
Tobias was transported to a local trauma center and he is now in police custody. One of the other occupants was identified as Rayduan Lindsay, a 24-year-old Oakland resident. Lindsay was not struck by gunfire, however received medical treatment for a non-life-threatening injury to his lower body. Lindsay was taken into custody after receiving medical treatment. The third occupant in the vehicle was identified as Cameron Standley, a 29-year-old resident of Oakland/Richmond. Standley was not injured and was taken into custody at the scene. Witnesses from Sephora positively identified two of the suspects as being responsible for the burglary. Video surveillance collected from the store, as well as community cameras, verified the three occupants were the same suspects who committed the theft. Store employees initially reported this incident as an in-progress robbery, with patrons running out of the store and fearing for their safety. After further investigation it was determined that incident was a felony grand theft from the store.
The suspects were not armed during the commission of the grand theft and officers did not find any weapons in the suspect vehicle. Property stolen from the store was located inside of the suspect vehicle. When the vehicle was searched, officers recovered Sephora products in multiple large garbage bags.
