Robbery, gunshots keep Woodland cops busy

By

It was a busy Saturday night in Woodland, where police investigated a strong-arm robbery and, in an unrelated incident, arrested an armed man who allegedly fired several shots in a residential neighborhood.

Police said it was a Craigslist ad that led to the robbery, which occurred at about 8:45 p.m. Saturday at County Fair Mall. The victim, a 44-year-old Woodland man, had made arrangements to sell an iPad to an unidentified buyer in the mall parking lot.

“When the victim arrived at the mall parking lot, the suspect inspected the iPad and then pushed the victim and fled in a vehicle,” Lt. Derrek Kaff said in a news release. No injuries were reported.

The suspect was described as a white male in his early 20s, 5-foot-8 with a skinny build, closely shaved brown hair and brown eyes. He wore a white T-shirt and fled the scene in a red four-door sedan away from the scene.

Kaff said police also are seeking a second person of interest who was a passenger in the vehicle. She was a white female in her early 20s with brown hair.

About 90 minutes later, officers were on the scene of reported gunshots in the area of Alice and Johnston streets, south of Main Street.

The initial officer on scene reported hearing shots and seeing a man armed with a handgun, Sgt. Tom Davis said. When he saw the officer, the man fled through a nearby parking lot at Thomas and Main streets but was caught by police as he tried to climb a fence.

Zachary Akin, 24, of Woodland, was lodged at the Yolo County Jail on suspicion of possessing a loaded firearm, willfully discharging a firearm in a grossly negligent manner and resisting arrest, Davis said. Police also recovered a .22-caliber handgun from behind the fence as well as four expended shell casings on Thomas Street.

No injuries or damage from the gunshots were reported as of early Sunday morning, according to Davis.

Both cases remain under investigation. Anyone with information about either incident is asked to contact the Woodland Police Department at (530) 666-2411.
