Alan W. Rose, 26, of Sacramento was arrested Monday afternoon after Rocklin police responded to a report of an attempted carjacking on Sierra College Boulevard.
It was reported at about 3 p.m. that a white male subject believed to be in his 20s had exited a sedan that had stalled in the No. 1 southbound lane of Sierra College Boulevard, according to the report. The subject then entered the lanes of traffic on foot and attempted to stop two separate vehicles traveling on Sierra College Boulevard. He attempted to open the vehicle doors and force the occupants out of the vehicle.
After failing to enter another vehicle, the subject threw the keys from the initial car he exited and fled the area on foot. He was described as a white male adult in his 20s with baggy jeans and a black pullover sweatshirt. It was reported that the suspect was possibly armed with a handgun.
A perimeter was set up by responding officers and the subject was located hiding in a field a short distance from the scene. He was taken into custody without incident and no handgun was found. The subject was identified to be Rose. He was later booked at the Placer County Jail on the following charges: attempted carjacking, a felony; child endangerment, a felony; and violation of domestic violence restraining order, a misdemeanor.
Anyone with further information regarding these crimes is encouraged to call the Rocklin Police Department at 625-5400.
