A suspect is in custody after a carjacking in Pleasant Hill, according to police.

Just after midnight, a masked gunman approached a couple while they were seated in their parked vehicle at Burger King on Contra Costa Blvd, near the Sunvalley Mall.

The gunman demanded their vehicle and cell phone. The suspect then struck the male victim on the head with the weapon, and the suspect fled the area with the stolen vehicle, according to police.

Pleasant Hill Police officers responded to the scene immediately. Within minutes, the stolen auto was tracked moving through streets in Bay Point, where it was located by police.

The sole occupant, identified by police as 24-year-old Antioch resident Rocky Wilson, was arrested and later booked into the Contra Costa County jail in Martinez for carjacking and other related charges.

A replica firearm was recovered inside the stolen vehicle, police said.

Maybe, just maybe if he had pulled his pants up he may have escaped. POS

Pictures at ten.

In a CCW state Rocky would not be carjacking any longer.

Why are most of his arrests in Pleasant Hill if he lives in Antioch? What’s he got against Pleasant Hill?

With our new DA, Rocky won’t even need a defense.

Had to be a fake,

If he could afford an authentic M1911, he could afford a good car.

Rock Island 1911 GIs can be found for under $600.

Springfield’s aren’t much beyond that.

Atticus Thraxx August 15, 2018 at 6:09 PM

I’ve seen Taurus 1911s under $500.00. Recently.

Wonder if Rocky is going to make the acquaintance of Bullwinkle in the joint?

Lena August 15, 2018 at 10:13 PM

High five!!! Low five !!! Do a little dance!!!

Atticus Thraxx August 15, 2018 at 4:51 PM

Bad enough getting robbed and taking a blow to the head, but to come to find out later it was a replica might be just too much to take.

This clown should have his ass kicked for this

MEV August 15, 2018 at 5:57 PM

Nice Nikes!

Ignorance hater August 15, 2018 at 6:50 PM

Very sad! This is not the kind of person Rocky is!

Cowellian August 15, 2018 at 7:04 PM

If that is so, then he’s doing a pretty good impression of this kind of person.

Atticus Thraxx August 15, 2018 at 7:25 PM

Seriously?

Joatmeal August 16, 2018 at 6:22 AM

He did it, therefore this is the kind of person he is.

Googlar August 16, 2018 at 1:35 PM

It is exactly the kind of person he is, obviously. LOL.

Original G August 15, 2018 at 7:13 PM

Wouldn’t it be Karma is while he’s in custody his place got broken into and ALL his stuff got ripped off?

Leeme guess didn’t graduate top of his high school class, poor impulse control, self important and has ZERO empathy for others.

Lena August 15, 2018 at 10:22 PM

That would generate bad karma for the person srealing from him.

Citizen August 15, 2018 at 8:21 PM

That is one of my biggest fears! Getting carjacked is terrible! For one thing I do not go out late at night! However you would think a couple together would be safe!! Obviously not! Good thing they caught this Rocky guy! It just kills me to think these folks think they are entitled to take our cars!! You know how expensive cars are too! I hope this guy gets into a lot of trouble!

Ignorance hater August 15, 2018 at 9:14 PM

Well it happened in advance. No longer has a home to be robbed or owns anything to steal. Dont get me wrong, what he did is unacceptable. The point I was trying to make was what makes someone do something like this out of the blue, when its not something they’ve done or even thought about doing before. But I guess smart ass comments are what everyone wants to read and write. WABOLA’s

Mac and Cheese August 16, 2018 at 6:51 AM

Not the kind of guy he is? This is a heck of a crime to commit for someone who is in reality a sweet person. I’m confused. Someone else posted a criminal record for Rocky and he DOES seem to be the sort of person who thinks its ok to steal from others. How does Rocky know what sort of financial situation the young couple he carjacked are in? Maybe they are living out of that car or perhaps they need it to get to work. Was he worried about what damage he could have inflicted on the man he assaulted? Your sympathy is a little misplaced. If people like you would hold people like Rocky (criminals) accountable instead of finding fault with those of us who are fed up with the crime rate, this state might be a better place to live.

some people are plain and simple worthless…drains on society and never contribute in any way…this guy will never amount to anything…there is no reason why

Pleasant August 16, 2018 at 12:06 AM

By his arrest record, it appears he’s developing quite the criminal career. I hope he gets substantial hard time for this batch of felonies.

Silva August 16, 2018 at 8:42 AM

I bet he’s a true prince underneath his violent criminal exterior.

Chuck Yomonee August 16, 2018 at 9:34 PM

So sad .. do folks now the cost of his defense is funded by our tax dollars.He can get an excellent attorney by conflicting each public defender and he can get a PI and experts to look at the authenticity veracity last time the radar was inspected and certified … I mean this guy could present an incredible defense but he has to be an indigent criminal and have been through the system.. if he doesn’t feel like it doesnt have the energy perhaps a .. then say ” I am addict and I need help ” you can use that basically as aget out of jail free card

Graceful August 18, 2018 at 12:06 PM

the California revolving door justice system…catch and release…that’s good enough apparently.. they cost less letting them roam free than giving them 3 squares a day and free healthcare…at about 60k or more each. much cheaper to let them roam.
