Three teenagers were arrested by Pleasanton police Monday after an attempted armed robbery in a parking lot at the Stoneridge Shopping Center.
Officers were called to the area around 1 p.m. after a woman reported being approached by three teens who demanded her purse and car. Police said one of the suspects attempted to pin the suspect’s arms while another aimed a semi-automatic pistol at her face.
The unidentified victim told police she managed to pull away from the suspects and began to scream for help. The trio fled into the Stoneridge mall and were gone when police arrived. A search of the area was successful in locating the trio and a pistol.
Police described the trio as juveniles and declined to release further information about them. They were taken to Juvenile Hall and booked on a number of felony charges, according to police.
