(by Janis Mara) – Officers nabbed two young men after they snatched a laptop from a BART patron at the Fruitvale station Friday night, police said.

The two suspects grabbed the laptop from a patron around 10:05 p.m., dropped it and then wrestled it away from the patron a second time, according to BART police. The two then dropped the property again and fled, police said.

Officers detained both suspects, with one cited to his parent on suspicion of theft from a person and the other booked at juvenile hall on suspicion of robbery, BART police said.

Awesome that they got caught. Too bad the victim now has a broken laptop.

These people….need to go back to the ghetto…get a life and stop ripping off the people who work for a living. Idiots, as a nice way of calling THEM.

Suspicion of theft and robbery? They did it and were caught what do they mean suspicion?

The Sixth Amendment, innocent until proven guilty.

Man they probably broke it when they dropped it a few times while trying to steal.

Good job BART Police! Sick 😷 of these thieves!

No if caught in the act your guilty, 6th amendment should not apply. What is innocent of these 2 in crime committed…they did it…period.
Too bad both of them didn’t get the crap beat out of them with a few dozen broken bones while caught in the act.

Send these little shats to military camp so they can learn to become men.

Great job for the BART police. I wish BART would station full time officers at the Colosseum station. I will no longer take BART to and from the Oakland Airport I just feel like a target with my luggage and laptop waiting for a train.

Bring the draft back. These people need training.

Sure put them in the military let the military take care of our delinquents. Think jail would be better. They may as well get used to it early.

“Cited to his parent” – yeah, that’ll deter the little punk.
