BPD: CARJACKING ENDS WITH TWO IN CUSTODY
Replica Firearm Recovered

Berkeley, California (Tuesday, October 11, 2016) - On 10/06/16 at 11:59pm, the victim parked her car on the 2100 block of Prince Street and exited when she was approached by three male adults, one armed with a handgun. They told her to get back into her car. The victim dropped her purse, cell phone, car keys, and ran. The suspects picked up her property and fled the area in her vehicle.

A few minutes later, a BPD patrol officer spotted the vehicle driving in the south campus area. A vehicle pursuit ensued and ended at Halcyon Court and Prince Street when the two occupants of the vehicle ran. Both suspects were detained and arrested. A replica firearm was recovered in the vehicle. The third suspect was tracked to the Ashby BART station where some of the victim's property was recovered.  The third suspect was not located and remains at large.   The suspect driver of the stolen vehicle is currently on parole.

Arrested was 23 year old Terrence Holyfield and Charles Anderson 18, both Oakland residents.  Holyfield and Anderson face charges including Robbery, Carjacking, and Felony Evading.  Holyfield faces an additional charge for violating the terms of his parole.
