Two minors charged in gang-related incident

Two juveniles, including one from Pleasanton, have been charged with gang activity in an incident May 5 near Santa Rita Road and West Las Positas Boulevard.

A woman at Las Positas Townhomes near that intersection reported a man hiding on her patio just after 4 p.m., according to a police report, which said the man told officers he'd been threatened by two people while he was walking to a bus stop.

Police responding to the area discovered two teens in a car parked at ValleyCare Medical Center. Because the two were on probation, the car was searched, yielding a homemade dagger, the report said.

A 17-year-old from Tracy, allegedly affiliated with the Surenos gang, was charged with threats and brandishing a weapon. A 16-year-old from Pleasanton was charged with weapons possession; both were charged with involvement in gang-related activity.
