Police arrested three men in connection with the May 5 robbery at Your Eye’s Image in Morgan Hill. Union City residents James Delacruz, 21, and Paul Samsotha, were arrested Friday. The third suspect,

Edward O, 29, of San Jose, was arrested Saturday.

Morgan Hill police responded to Your Eye’s Image at 419 Vineyard Town Center about 1:39 p.m. that day, in response to a call reporting a possible armed robbery, according to Sgt. Shane Palsgrove.

When officers arrived, the female store clerk told them that an unknown Asian male adult approached the counter. The man pulled up his shirt as if to expose a weapon in his waistband. The clerk did not see a weapon. The clerk then noticed another Asian male adult who was emptying a display stand of more than $8,000 worth of name brand eyeglasses into a bag, police said. The clerk ran to the back of the store and told another employee they were being robbed.

The suspects ran out of the store and were chased by a customer who was inside the store. They entered a silver four-door Mercedes, where a third suspect was waiting, Palsgrove said.

No one was injured in the robbery, Palsgrove said.
