An arrest was made in the robbery of an Asian couple in South Sacramento on Saturday. The robbery was captured on the couple’s Ring video and shared on social media. The video has since been removed at the request of the family.
In the video, a woman was seen at the front door of a home trying to open it, when one of the suspects appeared with a gun trailing the man as he approached the front door. A second suspect appeared shortly after. Both were armed with guns. They took personal property from couple and then fled the scene.
Sacramento Sheriff’s were notified of the robbery around 11;30 pm and responded to the scene. Officers arriving on the scene began a preliminary investigation and located the vehicle, which they believed to be involved in the robbery. Deputies conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Franklin Blvd and 26th Ave. Two suspects were detained. Maleak Japree Cole (28) of Sacramento and Marquiese Cheatham (20) also of Sacramento were arrested. The victims property was located in the vehicle along with two firearms.
