Arrest after gunfire on Rosewood Drive

A San Ramon man out on bail for an alleged prior crime faces new charges after a robbery with shots fired at the victim Aug. 19.

Employees of the CVS Pharmacy in the 4200 block of Rosewood Drive reported shots fired in the parking lot around 10 p.m., according to a police report, which said two men were seen running toward a Honda sedan and an SUV. Both vehicles left the scene, but the 23-year-old victim, whose name was not released, told police he had been robbed of an iPod at gunpoint, and that two shots were fired at him. Those shots missed and the victim was able to escape without harm.

Evidence and information at the scene led police to Antonio Faraz Rad, 19, who was arrested the same night. Rad was charged with robbery, attempted murder and a felony enhancement for committing felonies while out on bail.

Police are continuing their search for a second suspect and a gray or silver SUV that may be linked to the crime. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Pleasanton police at 931-5100.
