14-Year-Old Arrested for Series of Attempted Carjackings in Livermore

Livermore police have apprehended a 14-year-old boy suspected of carrying out a string of attempted carjackings in the city. The series of incidents began on March 12 when a man reported being threatened by the suspect in a downtown parking structure near South Livermore and Railroad avenues. The suspect, who matched the description provided by witnesses in subsequent incidents, simulated having a firearm by placing his hand in his pocket. However, the targeted individual managed to drive away as the suspect kicked his vehicle.

Over the next few days, four additional reports of similar attempted carjackings were received by the police. It remains unclear whether these incidents occurred in the same parking structure or elsewhere within Livermore. The Livermore Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit utilized video surveillance footage and witness statements to identify the suspect, who is a resident of Livermore.

Without incident, the suspect was arrested at his school on Thursday and subsequently transported to San Leandro’s Juvenile Hall. He has been booked on multiple charges, including attempted carjacking, attempted robbery, and making criminal threats. As of now, it is unknown whether he remains in custody or has been formally charged.
