Two Men Arrested After Suspicious Doorbell Ring

San Leandro police say the suspects had burglary tools. Could this incident be related to the rash of 'knock-first' break-ins that have been occurring in the East Bay?


San Leandro police have arrested two men who were allegedly in possession of burglary tools after a Washington Manor resident reported them for behaving suspiciously.

Police say the incident began about 8:30 am Monday when a man rang a doorbell on the 15000 block of Norton Street.

When the stranger realized someone was home he got into a car with another man and drove away, according to police.

Police say the resident phoned in a description of the men and their vehicle. 

An officer stopped a vehicle matching that description leaving the area. Police say the occupants had no logical explanation for being in the area and that they possessed burglary tools. 

The two men were arrested for possessing burglary tools.

They are:

  • Dana Brown, 30, of Hayward
  • Rahim Kenjoni, 32, of Pleasanton

About three weeks ago San Leandro police warned about a rash of residential burglaries in the East Bay in which suspects knocked on doors or rang bells to determine if anyone was home before they broke in.

San Leandro police are withholding details about the tools they retrieved in this case while they work with departments in other cities to determine whether these suspects may have been active elsewhere.

I'm glad they arrested these pond sucking scum. It's because of fools like Marge who not only coddle, but celebrate; perverts, degenerates, criminals and rapists is why crime high. We know what you and your ACLU ilk are up to Marga, You are about destroying the USA and instituting a Marxist government. It will be a COLD day in Hell before we let your type take over this country.

I'll be lined up on the side of normalcy, Michael Moore, you can continue to coddle the criminals.

Marga thinks that crime is acceptable. No sense trying to talk logic with this Buenos Aires Blowhard.

If Marga's pad gets broken into, Marga would no doubtedly sympathize with the people who stole from her. She has no sense of morality or justice. Her and her husband are a threat not only to the education of San Leandro children but to society as a whole.

Ken, listen this old battle axe hates the USA. She HATES the fact that there is such a thing as "private property" in the USA. She was run out of that Third World Cesspool known as Argentina and is on a world wide anarchist crusade. She's a disturbed and sick woman. She sees nothing wrong with someone trespassing on people's property because in her mind there should be no "private property".
