Two suspects steal truck

Police are seeking two suspects who reportedly stole a truck parked in a Mountain View gas station earlier this week.

The two suspects, one man and one woman, reportedly stole the 2002 Ford F150 truck from a Valero gas station on the 300 block of San Antonio Road around 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14, according to police. The two suspects were seen entering the gas station before running to the truck and driving southbound on San Antonio Road, police said.

The woman is described as tall and lean with brown hair, and was wearing sweatpants, a maroon shirt and sandals. The man is described as tall and lean with a shaved head, and was seen wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt with a white logo and black jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 650-903-6344 and refer to case number 17-1625.

Assault suspect arrested

A 30-year-old transient man was arrested last week after he traveled to his ex-girlfriend's house and allegedly attacked one of the residents.

Police received reports that the man, identified as Jarwin Ricks, was banging on the door of a home on the 200 block of Higdon Avenue and refused to leave at around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8. Ricks told officers that he wanted to retrieve some of his personal items from the home of his ex-girlfriend, and that he was trying to get inside, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.

Residents inside the home told officers that Ricks was acting erratically, and allegedly attacked one of the people inside, Nelson said.

Ricks was arrested on misdemeanor battery charges and was booked into Santa Clara County jail.
