On Wednesday, December 1, 2021, at approximately 02:15 AM, a Redwood City Police Officer was on patrol in the 400 block of Woodside Road when he observed three subjects exit the 7-Eleven, run to a nearby parked vehicle and flee the scene.  The officer made contact with the 7-Eleven employee, who told him the subjects had just committed an armed robbery of the business.  The officer was able to catch up to the fleeing vehicle and attempted to stop it.  The vehicle did not yield and entered onto southbound HWY101 from Woodside Road.  Redwood City Police Officers pursued the fleeing vehicle to the Marsh Road exit were it crashed.  The occupants attempted to run from the vehicle, but were quickly apprehended by Redwood City and Menlo Park Police Officers.   A loaded 9 mm handgun was located at the scene of the crash, along with several hundred dollars in US currency believed to have been taken in the robbery.   The suspects were identified as Jylyn RichardsonGreen, Deshawn Carter, and a 15-year old male juvenile.  They were treated at a local hospital for minor injuries suffered as a result of the vehicle collision.  Once cleared medically, the two adult suspects were booked into the San Mateo County Jail for robbery, conspiracy, felony evading, and carrying a loaded firearm.  The juvenile suspect was booked into Hillcrest Youth Services Center for the same charges.

During the pursuit of the suspect vehicle a Redwood City Police vehicle was involved in a solo vehicle collision.  The officer involved in the collision suffered minor injuries.
