FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield teen and a Sacramento man suspected in a Jan. 16 shooting on Capistrano Court were arrested Tuesday by Fairfield police in two separate searches of houses here and in Sacramento, according to the Fairfield Police Department.
Police arrested the Fairfield juvenile at a house on the 1300 block of Northwood Court without incident after serving a search warrant there. They arrested Michael Behnamnia, 19, of Sacramento, after serving a search warrant at a house on the 700 block of Dixieanne Avenue in Sacramento.
The two had allegedly arrived at a house Jan. 16 on Capistrano Court to buy marijuana, but ended up pulling out handguns and robbing the seller, a juvenile, before fleeing to their vehicle.

Subsequent investigations identified the two suspects as Behnamnia and the Fairfield teen, police said.
The teen was booked into Solano County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of assault with a firearm, robbery and criminal conspiracy.
