Last week's disturbing case of a burning female body that was dumped in the middle of a quiet Rockridge Street early one morning appears to be heading somewhere. First, the victim was identified as 21-year-old Monica Rodas-Alfaro, a mother of one. And police arrested two men yesterday in connection with the case who were spotted walking on the 4800 block of Macarthur Boulevard, who subsequently took off running. Cops gave chase, and the two men, whose names have not been released, were apprehended and taken into custody.
As the Chron reports, both men were in custody within two hours of the sighting yesterday afternoon.
Alfaro's body was found by residents of Ivanhoe Road in Rockridge, between Chabot Road and Miles Avenue north of Highway 24, around 4:30 a.m. Thursday.
