An arrest has been made in the robbery of young adults having a house party while their parents were out of town early Saturday morning.

Roseville police officers responded to a report of a robbery at a house party around 1:35 a.m. Saturday on the 1800 block of Avenida Martina.

Seven uninvited men crashed the party, sparking a fight that left one guest with minor injuries.

One of the men showed a handgun and the group began robbing guests of personal property, including cellphones and watches. The men then fled in a sedan.

The slightly injured guest was treated at a hospital emergency room. Another guest was taken to jail for public intoxication after becoming uncooperative with officers. The young adults at the party were around 18 years old.

Early Sunday morning, police said they arrested who they believe is the primary suspect in the robbery: Brent Leo Alan Mason, 19, of Roseville. He was arrested at a Rocklin apartment complex.

He is suspected of brandishing a handgun at the party.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Roseville Police Department at 916-774-5000, ext. 1.
