The Berkeley Police Department announced Tuesday that they have arrested a man suspected of being involved in a Berkeley homicide that took place in May. 

The suspect, 25-year-old Rafael Campbell, was profiled in the Nov. 7 broadcast of America’s Most Wanted. 

Police have been looking for Campbell in connection with the May 16 murder of Charles CJ Jones at 10th Street and Allston Way. Campbell is one of the final four suspects in that case to be arrested, according to Berkeley Polcie Department spokesperson Lt. Andrew Greenwood. 

Greenwood said that the U.S. Marshall’s office “has been engaged in an ongoing search for Campbell.” 

  At approximately 12:45 p.m. Tuesday, U.S. Marshals, working with the California Department of Corrections Northern California Fugitive Apprehension Team, and officers from the Sacramento Police Department, tried to contact Campbell at a ground-floor apartment at 4500 Natomas Crossing Road. 

  Greenwood said “Campbell attempted to flee out of the rear of the apartment, and was apprehended by a Sacramento Police K-9 and officers who’d surrounded the complex.” 

  Campbell was arrested without further incident, and is being held at the Berkeley Police Department jail until his arraignment.
