A 16-year-old has been arrested after a carjacking in the City of Clayton, according to the Antioch Police.

Police say the carjacking occurred in Clayton on Sunday night around 10:45 p.m.

The suspect in their case was reportedly armed with a handgun, and was last seen on Kirker Pass Rd., towards the City of Pittsburg.

About 15 minutes later, an Antioch police officer spotted the vehicle in the area of Delta Fair Blvd. and Buchanan Rd., and upon trying to stop it, the driver fled, police said. After a brief vehicle pursuit, the driver collided with a parked car, then attempted to flee on foot.

He was quickly apprehended by pursuing officers.

The driver, an Antioch resident, was subsequently identified by the carjacking victim, and turned over to Clayton Police.

He was later transported to Juvenile Hall on a variety of felony charges.

Thanks to our friends at EastCountyToday.net for the tip.

Little puke!

JohnnyWoop April 16, 2018 at 10:12 PM

It’s the NRA’s fault for giving him the gun! (Insert sarcasm smiley).

Seriously though, I wonder how many laws he broke and if he’ll be charged with all of them. Felon in possession of a gun. Carrying a concealed loaded firearm. Illegal transport of a loaded firearm. Yup, it’s all the guns fault. The little puke wouldn’t have done any of those things if it wasn’t for the gun making him do it.

Yup, the little scumbag is a little puke! 14 years old and a life of crime. Sad.

Thanks to everyone who voted for catch and release, $950 or less go free, etc. You suck!

Juvenile detention…a slap on the wrist, detention and he’ll be back on the streets bragging about how cool it was to elude the police and the adrenaline rush he had, meanwhile the victim has to deal with their insurance company about their wrecked car, lost work, wages and headaches

Dawg April 16, 2018 at 10:30 AM

And if they don’t have full coverage, they are SOL.

Ricardoh April 16, 2018 at 9:54 AM

This kid is worthless and putting him back on the street will end up being very regretful.

ZZ April 16, 2018 at 10:02 AM

Awwww, give him a break, the buses weren’t running and he just wanted a ride home. He had school the next day and he needed a good nights rest. Poor kid.

Nature Rules! April 16, 2018 at 10:18 AM

It’s the County Connection’s fault. It’s lousy service forces Antioch residents to steal Concord/Clayton vehicles in order to get home.

PitstopPenny April 16, 2018 at 5:21 PM

Are you kidding me!!Crime is everywhere. As a matter of fact Concord is right up there with high crime.

PitstopPenny April 16, 2018 at 5:46 PM

Crime, guns and drugs live in your special city of Concord!

Taxpayer April 16, 2018 at 10:12 AM

His parents/guardians should serve time

MoJo April 16, 2018 at 10:20 AM

Since he is 16 and was charged with multiple felonies, maybe he’ll get tried as an adult and do some time in the big house. Nah, this is California.

Rollo Tomasi April 16, 2018 at 10:24 AM

If there was a gun and it was recovered, he might get slightly more than the usual.

Bill Cutting April 16, 2018 at 10:29 AM

Wow look at those gun laws really stopping people from brandishing firearms aren’t they?

JWB April 16, 2018 at 11:59 AM

So are you also against traffic laws? Because you can make the same comment for any traffic accident, such as the ones involving excess speed, or drunk driving?

Rollo Tomasi April 16, 2018 at 1:12 PM

Can you name a traffic law that violates a constitutionally protected right?

JWB April 16, 2018 at 2:13 PM

Can you name a gun law that violates a constitutionally protected right?

Rollo Tomasi April 16, 2018 at 3:56 PM

So you can’t then. Moving on…

Chicken Little April 16, 2018 at 5:30 PM

The difference is that laws against running red lights don’t penalize people who don’t run red lights. The same cannot be said for most gun laws.

JWB April 16, 2018 at 6:58 PM

….of course you cannot name a gun law that violates a constitutionally protected right, because neither traffic laws nor gun laws can violate the constitution. That is one of the functions of the SCOTUS. Now just saying that gun laws violate you constituional rights doesn’t make it so. I’m quite sure if you were to spend some time outside a traffic court you would hear many nutcases making the same claim about traffic laws.

JWB April 16, 2018 at 7:10 PM

I’m not sure what you’re trying to say CL? Traffic laws punish the ones who break that law, gun laws would punish the ones that break that law?

Did you mean to say that gun laws may limit certain people from guns who feel they pose no threat to the public? Maybe you should talk to some traffic law offenders. They generally don’t think their action pose a threat to the public either, they usually feel they are safe drivers and going 100 mph or beating a red light or driving with a few drinks does not make them unsafe.

Chicken Little April 17, 2018 at 3:57 AM

JWB, the California “safe” gun roster prevents law-abiding people from buying any new handgun models. The 10-round magazine limit prevents law-abiding people from using standard capacity magazines. Gun-free zones deprive law-abiding people of their right to self-defense. Victims of firearm theft become criminals themselves if they fail to report the theft in a timely manner. There are plenty more, but that should give you an idea.

Gitittogether April 16, 2018 at 11:11 AM

Pretty serious crime…and one which could end up with him being an “angry young man, face down on the street with a gun in his hand”…

Curious April 16, 2018 at 11:21 AM

Any idea what part of Clayton the Carjacking took place?

Suzanne April 16, 2018 at 11:27 AM

Ah, another fine career in the makes. Yeah, make sure you blur his face because we want to protect this poor child’s identity. We wouldn’t want to show the world what kind of garbage this “minor” is!

It makes sense to me April 16, 2018 at 11:34 AM

Boil Him

PO'd April 16, 2018 at 11:41 AM

Wouldn’t be the first crime committed by going over the hill to where the money is.

Question for the liberals: How do you plan to disarm the hood?

anon April 16, 2018 at 11:59 AM

So PO’d, I take it you’re a Conservative by your remark. How would you disarm the hood?

CR April 16, 2018 at 12:00 PM

If you would just agree to pay more taxes we could implement a few jobs programs and then all these issues would disappear (sarcasm)

Coco Rez April 16, 2018 at 12:08 PM

They only plan is to disarm everyone else so we’re easy pickings for the criminals. It’s only fair.

Rollo Tomasi April 16, 2018 at 1:18 PM

As a Conservative, i wouldn’t disarm the law abiding residents of the hood, for obvious reasons.

Badge1104 April 16, 2018 at 4:57 PM

I’m in agreement with that comment I was thinking the same thing. Good law-abiding people would turn over their guns but do you really think the ghetto crowd would turn over their guns should the government ever tried to confiscate them. but knowing the crazed liberals mentalities they probably say that oh they could keep the guns because they’re disadvantaged and they vote democrat. I too wonder where in Clayton this happened probably the shopping center not in a neighborhood.

Covfee April 16, 2018 at 5:54 PM

There is no need to disarm people, simply regulate ammunition similar to how we do for pseudoephedrine. Your registered firearms are linked to your California drivers license, which they swipe at point of purchase, verifying that you have a legally registered weapon in that caliber and you have not exceeded the monthly purchase quantity.

PO'd April 17, 2018 at 7:16 AM

Anon-I wouldn’t disarm anyone legally allowed to have a firearm. I advocate building more state prisons to keep up with rate of prosecution, and putting people away for longer sentences. Any felon caught with a firearm gets 5 years. 47 and 109 need to disappear.
Most libs want to take firearms away from everyone. That’s not going to happen.
Glad no one was injured.

Rollo Tomasi April 17, 2018 at 9:19 AM

@ Covfee:

Great idea, comrade. When did you return from the gulags?

Original G April 16, 2018 at 12:12 PM

We lived in antioch for many years before moving to Clayton.
Am in no way surprised a 16 year old in antioch has a hand gun.

Before getting on my soap box, the easy on criminal legislation such as AB-109 and the rest of the easy on criminals … well Democrats made sure it applies to juveniles too.

They, last I heard were still having problems filling vacancies in their Police dept. Qualified persons evidently don’t want to work in antioch.

Delta Fair Blvd. and Buchanan Rd. is one of the MANY arm pits of antioch.
Businesses have been fleeing that area for years.
Have been at least 2 murders over the years within 4 block radius of that intersection.

If citizens of antioch want to assign blame for what their city has become (some years having same number of murders as Richmond,CA) look no further than city councils past, present and a few non elected bureaucrats giving them bad advice.

Every city must provide a collection of city services to each parcel of land at a fixed to rising cost. antioch found out what happens when you allow small residences to be built on postage size lots. Developers cashed out handsomely leaving the city to deal with long term problems. Even worse there is much high density housing in antioch.

During recession antioch found out the folly of allowing builders to maximize profits leaving them with an insufficient margin between tax revenue and cost of providing city services.

Where as Clayton came thru the recession with barely a hiccup due to traditionally having larger dwellings on larger lots giving them an ample tax revenue cushion to provide city services.

Badge1104 April 16, 2018 at 4:59 PM

So true!

Silva April 16, 2018 at 12:13 PM

Whoops! Nevermind, so sorry.

Venice April 16, 2018 at 12:25 PM

We need more programs that will pay these nice kids to leave us alone and not rob us. Maybe that Mark fella will come up with another idea. I’m sure it will only cost us a slight tax increase.

ClayDen April 16, 2018 at 12:36 PM

I thought it was illegal to use a gun to commit a crime.

rings4me April 16, 2018 at 1:33 PM

I thought it was illegal to STEAL cars??? hmmm
. whoops, my bad

chuckie the troll April 16, 2018 at 1:24 PM

Who trained him and brought him up to be the young ‘man’ he is today? Was this parental neglect, malpractice, or just bad genes?

BoycottTheCircus April 16, 2018 at 6:52 PM

I blame his mom

Reality says... April 16, 2018 at 1:40 PM

Willing to bet he has priors – you don’t just wake up one day and decide to carjack someone. That’s a higher level of criminal activity usually not seen with first or second time offenders. But he’s 16, we’ll never know.

His next crime will be more violent and will include another gun and shooting someone.

What’s the status on building that wall on KPRd.?

Tim April 16, 2018 at 1:53 PM

Reading this makes me sick to my stomach. How can a 16 year old child turn out so bad so early in life. Sadly, this is only the start of a life of crime for this individual.

ClayDen April 16, 2018 at 1:57 PM

Maybe we need a moat around Clayton.

Fritzhugh Ludlow April 16, 2018 at 8:28 PM

The creek by the Library is a good start, and if Alligator Lizards can live there maybe Alligators can also.

Concordmom April 16, 2018 at 2:02 PM

This isn’t a LAW problem, this is a parent problem. I’m tired of hearing parties blaming the other for the problems we have. Even in the 50’s we had crime, just LESS PEOPLE. He/she needs his butt kicked by his parents/guardian/older sibling. That’s where the problems start. When the kid turns 18 and goes to adult jail, they either get it or they don’t. Believe it or not, some people do come out rehabilitated.

NuMerica April 16, 2018 at 3:25 PM

Believe it or not…. I am one of those who learned – not after the first time, but after the 3rd time within a very short period after turning 18.

I had to completely reset my life, drop all of my friends, and find a new purpose. Ten years later I’m still 0 incidents with the law, and continuing to strive for a better life.

Sadly, most of my friends from back then only contact me now to let me know that they just got out of prison after 2-3 years asking me how I stayed out of trouble… and then a week later they’re gone again.

Concordmom April 17, 2018 at 5:08 AM

I’m very close with someone who spent a lot of time doing the wrong thing, and finally figured it out after a lot of punishment. It does work, you just have to want to be different. It starts at home. I was always more afraid of my father than the police, with out any consequence, there are no rules.

Great Gonzo April 16, 2018 at 3:02 PM

Waste of time, the punk is back on the pavement faster than the cops were!

NuMerica April 16, 2018 at 3:23 PM

I thought they just raised the legal limit to purchase any type of firearm to 21?

oh the shame. We need to raise the legal gun purchasing age to 37

Dr Jellyfinger April 16, 2018 at 4:41 PM

Who said he “purchased” it?

Citizens of CA voted Three Strikes into law for a reason.
What happened to three strikes ?

Criminals generally have several traits in common, a lack empathy towards their victims, a lack of impulse control and usually are immature.
Some liberals would like you to believe that criminals are somehow the true victims . . . .

NA April 16, 2018 at 7:20 PM

These criminals do not learn anything from juvy or prison except to become better criminals. I say beat the hell our of criminals so the others think twice. So glad police were safe from these jerks getting shot cuz they don’t know how to follow directions.

Kentucky Derby April 16, 2018 at 9:04 PM

Even beating the heck out of someone won’t stop someone from committing a crime. People with street cred don’t mind a fight. The only thing that will stop a criminal is his own desire not to commit a crime. Criminals commit crimes because they can. And nothing will stop them.

Get Off My Lawn April 16, 2018 at 9:14 PM

No doubt this young person already has a long history of smaller crimes before leveling up to carjacker.

This is why states like Texas allow concealed carry and tend to side with the property owner when someone committing a crime gets shot. It’s sad to think we need to become the wild Wild West again but having the ability to defend yourself and your property might be a deterrent to the criminals. Don’t want to get killed? Don’t carjack.

Stick Jockey April 17, 2018 at 8:03 AM

16 years old and 10:45 PM. Besides him being a teenaged slim bag where are Mom and Dad.? Does he have any priors?

chuckie the troll April 17, 2018 at 11:42 AM

Is a Spay/Neuter program the answer? The County Animal Shelter swears by it.

DAS April 20, 2018 at 7:21 PM

I blame GTA5. This child is almost too young to even drive a car. How is he stealing one?
