Gang activity may have played a role in both a carjacking and a shooting that occurred in Woodland late last week, according to police.

Three people were arrested in connection with the carjacking, which occurred at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday near Ferns Park on West Southwood Drive. The victim reported being assaulted by three males who took his cell phone, car keys and 1994 Toyota, Sgt. Heath Parsons said.

The victim suffered bruises and scrapes but did not require medical aid.

Officers spotted the car about three hours later and arrested two males and a female who were inside. Sacramento resident Dominick Arismendez, 18, was lodged at the Yolo County Jail on suspicion of robbery, carjacking, conspiracy and criminal street-gang activity. His alleged accomplices, both minors, were taken to Juvenile Hall on similar charges, Parsons said.

Meanwhile, members of the Yolo County Gang Task Force have been asked to assist with the investigation into a shooting that occurred Saturday night outside a Sixth Street apartment complex, Woodland police said.

No one was injured in the 9 p.m. shooting, in which a white pickup truck and a small silver sedan pulled up outside the Woodland Gardens Apartments in the 1700 block of Sixth Street. A Latino male was seen emerging from one of the vehicles and shooting at another man before fleeing the scene in the silver car, Sgt. Aaron Delao said.

The victim, who escaped through a neighboring apartment complex, later called relatives to report he had been shot at but not injured, Delao said. Other residents of the apartment complex also escaped injury.

Anyone with information about either of these incidents is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-666-2411.
