Attempted Rape 

A UC Berkeley student fought off a would-be rapist who entered her bedroom just after 2 a.m. Saturday morning. According to police, the woman awoke at her co-op in the 2400 block of Ridge Road to find a man walking into her bedroom. 

When the intruder leaped on top her and made sexual comments, she managed to get out from underneath him and race out of the room. Police were summoned and arrested Kandarp Patel, 26, of Mountain View on suspicion of burglary and attempted rape. 


Police Stop Car, Find Gun 

A police officer stopped a driver at Ashby Avenue and King Street late Monday after noticing the car lacked a front license plate. Standing outside the car, he spotted a handgun sticking out from beneath the seat, and promptly arrested Saga Llewellyn, 29, of Oakland for possession of a concealed and loaded firearm. 


Armed Robbery 

A gunman welcomed the new Longs Drugs to the 1900 block of San Pablo Avenue with an old-fashioned stick-up Thursday evening. Police said the robber entered the store, waited in line and then demanded money from the clerk—then raced out the door with an undisclosed amount of cash. 


Robbery Via Threat of Gun 

A man walking through south Aquatic Park Friday night was robbed by an acquaintance. According to police, the victim was “looking to meet somebody” when he was approached and later robbed by a man who claimed to have a gun. Nearly three hours later officers found a man hiding in the bushes who the victim later identified as the robber. Terry Johnson, 38, of Oakland was busted for robbery and violating parole.
