Oakland police say a 15-year-old boy walked into a police substation with his mother and admitted he was involved in a series of takeover robberies of Asian restaurants.

During questioning Monday, investigators say the youth admitted to his role in two of the suspected eleven robberies.

Police haven't released the teen's name but say he's close friends with 19-year-old Mandi Coleman, who was arrested in the case Friday.

Police also arrested a third suspect Sunday. Ninteen-year-old Lance Lindquist has been charged with 57 felony counts.
