BART Police Arrest Suspects in N. Concord After Strong-Arm Robbery

August 11, 2014 16:00 pm · 33 comments


Two men were arrested over the weekend after a strong-arm robbery at the N. Concord BART station.

BART Police say a sergeant arrived in the main bus zone and saw a male suspect strike another male, and then quickly run away.

The sergeant chased after the suspect, and with the assistance of the officer, managed to take the suspect into custody after a brief struggle. Shortly after the arrest, the victim of the battery arrived and reported being robbed of his wallet and iPhone by the suspect and a second male suspect.

The second suspect was taken into custody shortly thereafter, at the scene. A detective responded and interviewed both suspects, and a lieutenant responded to perform the use of force investigation, BART police said.

Subsequently, the suspects were issued prohibition orders and fare evasion citations before being booked into the county jail for robbery and conspiracy.

The primary suspect was additionally booked for resisting arrest and probation violation. The victim, who complained of pain as a result of the battery, declined medical attention at the scene. Lastly, the victim managed to regain his wallet, but officers were unable to locate and/or track his iPhone.

The names of the suspects have not been released at this time.

Thank God for sergeants, detectives and lieutenants. Without them BART police would just be a gaggle of incompetent dufuses.

Oh, wait.

big bubba coming for thief loser August 11, 2014 at 5:09 PM

to bad the victim did not have a gun and shoot this thief dead, would have been one less low life loser in this world that we could all do without.

If this loser has not had children yet then it would have done the world a great deed by stopping the genes from spreading from this low life loser thief.

Karma will come back hopefully sooner than later and this low life loser thief can end up sharing a bunk in prison with bubba all night long in da butt, don’t worry low life loser big bubba will take care of you!

That's All Folks! August 11, 2014 at 5:12 PM

How many BART cops does it take to arrest two suspects?
On the bright side though, the sergeant was already there to approve the arrest, but they still needed a detective and lieutenant.

Anon August 11, 2014 at 5:13 PM

Damn it, J. That was mine. LOL

But it worth saying again, “Thank God there was a sergeant was available to approve the arrest.” After all, it takes more than common sense to enforce the law, which some bart cops don’t possess.

Good arrest, and so politically correct to have a superior officer conduct a use of force investigation when a robber gets taken down. If they are going to do that that don’t have to tell the world that they don’t trust their own people.

But still, good police work.

Anon August 11, 2014 at 5:36 PM

Nice work of an off duty officer which tells you these guys are never off duty.
Thank you

Wow August 11, 2014 at 5:38 PM

The jokes about approving arrests just never get old.

PO'd August 11, 2014 at 5:38 PM

Mr. Mayor- Any descriptions or pix? Glad to see BART Police got one.

Thanks Obama August 11, 2014 at 5:41 PM

Sounds like great work.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonair August 11, 2014 at 6:13 PM

More importantly, was anyone offended during the commission of this crime? the local lefties demand to know!!!

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonair August 11, 2014 at 6:17 PM

The local lefties believe this alleged criminals rights have been violated and must be released immediately with all charges dropped and he must be given a million dollars of compensation.

Anon August 11, 2014 at 6:59 PM

Bart cop jokes comes with the job.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonair August 11, 2014 at 7:31 PM

I hope this doesnt prevent us from embracing our Section 8 community, and the rich diversity they bring us!

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonair August 11, 2014 at 7:31 PM

diversity is our strength!

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonair August 11, 2014 at 7:33 PM

maybe he just wanted to “axe” for directions.

Mojoduck August 11, 2014 at 7:40 PM

Glen August 11, 2014 at 7:40 PM

Thank you BART Police for dealing with a local waste secretion today.

Tom August 11, 2014 at 7:42 PM

At least he got his wallet back.

sick_of_BART_BIG_TIME August 11, 2014 at 9:06 PM

I’m so sick of BART; delayed again because of Police Activity today; of course, they didn’t find anything. I don’t understand why BPD just can’t be on the trains; they might catch someone for a change. I’m delayed on BART more than I’m on time and these jerk-off BART managers think they dererve a 3.7% raise for this pathetic service? When do the passengers get their raise????????? BART SERVICE JUST STINKS. And, it is even worse on the weekend. If you get a train with doors that actually work, you’ve got a chance of MAYBE getting to your destination on time. Why these BART moron managers think these current train cars are going to last until 2017 is beyond me. I wish just one of these BART managers would get robbed and get their car broken into and have to sit on barfed on seats. The problem with BART Management is they don’t ride BART. Problem with BART Police is that they don’t ride BART. BART and YOU WILL NEVER BE THERE ON TIME!

Dumb ugly and not debonair,

I missed your diversity comments when we had some white crminals posted here on claycord in the past week.

anonomous August 11, 2014 at 10:29 PM

We need to get names and pictures of all the punks who do this trashy stuff so we can all see and be aware. Maybe a scrum bag banner at the bottom of the page. You know they think jail is a free vacation and will repeat.sick of scum

please Smart August 11, 2014 at 11:08 PM

Seek treatment asap

Anon August 12, 2014 at 8:37 AM

All arrests get approved by Sgts. In all depts. -not all depths send them to the scene-others do it by report review.

Concordejet August 12, 2014 at 9:59 AM

wonder if there any other way to get to the “East Bay Work” because N. Concord is pretty much the only way to get to the east bay work. I like to go there for job search. Excellent resources at the east bay works. so many job hunters are now worried about getting robbed while waiting for the bus 28 heading to the east bay work or Amtrak station.

I dare BART to post pix of crooks. Never happen and we know why..

..... August 12, 2014 at 10:10 AM

Keep in mind that BART PD also covers the stations (in addition to the trains). So are you suggesting that multiple officers be on every train AND at every station from 4 am to midnight? Is that the best use of resources?

Of all public transit agencies in the country, I’m not aware of a single one that is staffed to that degree. Do you want to pay for that? Do you also want to have your local police department staffed up so they have an officer on every corner?

Just asking…..

Cowellian August 12, 2014 at 10:29 AM

BART arrests get approved by sergeants?

Why didn’t anyone tell us that?

Anon August 12, 2014 at 6:57 PM

Wow, BART cops have an approval process, who knew. LOL
