Carjacking Suspect Arrested

Early Sunday morning, Roseville Police officers arrested a woman on suspicion of carjacking and several other charges.

At 1:11 a.m. Sunday, April 26, Roseville Police officers responded to a carjacking that had just occurred in the parking lot of Kaiser Hospital, 1600 Eureka Rd. A 74-year-old Carmichael man reported that he had just parked his Mazda sedan when he was approached by a woman who demanded his car keys, threatening that she would stab him with an HIV-contaminated needle if he didn't comply. No needle or other weapon was seen. The victim relinquished his keys to the suspect, and she got into the car and drove away.

Kaiser's security staff followed the stolen vehicle, keeping Roseville police dispatchers informed about its location until Roseville Police officers arrived in the area. The suspect evaded officers, driving in a reckless manner from East Roseville Parkway through residential neighborhoods in Granite Bay. Officers stopped and arrested the suspect in the 9800 block of Wesbourne Way in Granite Bay.

Amber Arlene Page, 29, no permanent address, was arrested on suspicion of carjacking, robbery, vehicle theft, making criminal threats, assault with a deadly weapon, recklessly evading a police officer, resisting arrest and driving under the influence of alcohol. She is being held in the Placer County Jail on $75,000 bail.
