Officers were dispatched to a reported armed robbery at a business in the 2500 block of Telegraph Avenue at about 5:45 p.m., according to Oakland police.
Three suspects carrying guns had robbed the business and left with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.
The victims were able to give officers descriptions of the suspects and a vehicle license plate number, police said.
A short time later, officers located a man who matched one of the descriptions in the 800 block of Adeline Street and determined that he was connected to the crime, police said.
A gun and money from the business were recovered from the business.
The two other suspects were still outstanding.
