Bashar Aremu is a suspect in an attempted kidnapping on March 14.
Emeryville police have identified a man who they believe kidnapped a woman in a parking garage in the 2100 block of
Powell Street (near the Hilton Garden Hotel) Wednesday night, forcing her into the trunk of her own car before she managed to escape. Investigators have a warrant for the arrest of Bashar Aremu, 30, and are asking for the public’s help to find him. They say he is 6 feet tall, 230 pounds, speaks with an accent, and might be working as a security guard.
Police say Aremu might also have been
responsible for a March 10 robbery of a
woman in a nearby business, who reported a gunman grabbed her
by the throat, demanded money and then forced her to disrobe and lie on the ground in the back of the store.
If you see Aremu do not approach him, call 911 immediately.
