Pleasant Hill: Suspects in Attempted Armed Robbery at Large

April 6, 2014 · 16 comments

Police are looking for suspects in an attempted armed robbery that happened in Pleasant Hill on Friday night, a police sergeant said.

At about 11 p.m. Friday, the robber exited the passenger side of a red two-door Honda Accord and confronted a 29-year-old Antioch man with a black handgun, Sgt. Matt Kristic said.

The robber demanded for the man’s wallet, but the victim was not carrying one at the time, Kristic said.

The robber went back inside the Honda Accord driven by another person and the pair fled south on Contra Costa Boulevard, he said.

The suspect is described as a black 20-year-old man standing about 5 feet 11 inches tall with a skinny build and short dark hair. He was wearing dark jeans and a gray shirt at the time of the robbery. No description was available for the driver.

The incident is similar to an armed robbery at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek that also occurred on Friday night, according to Kristic.

At about 11:15 p.m., Walnut Creek officers responded to a report of a robbery in front of Corner’s Tavern at 1342 Broadway Plaza, police said.

In that incident, the suspect used a black handgun to rob a female victim of her iPhone and purse then fled in a red two-door Honda, according to police.

The suspect in the Walnut Creek robbery is described as a man who has a dark complexion in his early 20s standing about 6 feet 1 inches tall with a medium build. He had a dark scarf covering his face and wore a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt or jacket. No description was available for the driver.

No one was injured in either robbery, according to police.

What happens when someone who is very stable and happens to be “carrying” feels like their life is in danger / threatened and sends these puking maggots into eternity…

The Creep obviously does not read Claycord and does not know we are looking for him. Won’t be long

Victim sounds like my brother in law. “I forgot my wallet.”

Same description every time!

Do you mean what happens in this county when somebody shoots a robber? The victim goes to jail because carrying for self-defense is illegal.

I’m going to start writing down the vehicle make, model and time of day/evening every time I see a car in Claycord with black males in it. Therefore I will already have the information to call in when a crime occurs and that vehicle description is given. I’m tired of this SIHT and am going to be proactive. I suggest you all do the same.

#9 Good idea.

CCW Supporter. He would have had some lead in him and so would his partner in crime. Oh WAIT…if CCW permits were a norm in Calif punks like this wouldn’t do this, for fear of getting some lead in them. Oh first FL passed a CCW carry and crime went down 62.5% over 7 years ago and now IL passes one and crime goes down over 57%. Come on people what does that tell you!?!

Thanks Mayor for reporting on these happenings. It’s good to know, so we can all be more vigilant and aware of what’s happening around us.
