One man was arrested and two others remain at-large after they were confronted while trying to break into a home south of campus over the weekend, police said.
Officer Jennifer Coats, police spokeswoman, said the trio was confronted by several people at 12:15 a.m. Saturday in the 2300 block of Warring Street, near Bancroft Way.
Coats said one of the would-be burglars, later identified as Daron Glenn Anderson Jr., brandished a knife and threatened to hurt the people trying to stop the burglary.
The trio left the area as police were responding. Coats said officers spotted three people matching the description provided by witnesses, and tried to detain them. They ran away, but police caught up with one of them, Anderson, around the corner in the 2300 block of Piedmont Avenue.
Anderson, 21, was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats, brandishing a weapon other than a firearm, and burglary. He’s being held with a bail of $105,000 at the Berkeley Jail, and is scheduled for arraignment on Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in downtown Oakland.
Coats said the two other suspects remain at-large.
