James Eduardo McMillian, a 28-year-old man, was charged Monday by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office with robbery and “assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury,” among other charges.
The suspect was arrested Sunday after allegedly punching and kicking a Berkeley resident on the 2100 block of Emerson Street. According to an email from the Berkeley Police Department, the resident confronted McMillian after seeing him allegedly looking into a neighbor’s windows. McMillian then “took a fighting stance” and allegedly punched the resident in the face when the resident refused to give him money.
A BPD officer arrived and allegedly witnessed McMillian kicking and punching the resident. The suspect then allegedly attempted to evade arrest by walking away and was arrested two blocks away without further incident.
