The first incident involved a Vietnamese couple in their 50s in Oakland near Franklin Elementary, reports ABC Bay Area reporter Dion Lim. The two had just finished up their visit at a health clinic when they were robbed at gunpoint by two people. According to the couple’s daughter, Amber, one of the suspects told her mom “Give me the purse… I’ll shoot you.” The couple was not physically hurt.
The second incident took place near the 200 block of East 12th and involved two Chinese people in their 50s and their 84-year-old father. All three were robbed at gunpoint and the woman victim was also hit in the head with the butt of a rifle.
Lim said the two teens allegedly involved in the armed robberies were arrested the next day for their allegedly robbery and shooting of a 60-year-old Dublin resident. According to CBS San Francisco News, 19-year-old Michael Roy and a 17-year-old were arrested for their alleged involvement in the crime.
The incident occurred on Tuesday at Clifden Court around 7:30 pm. According to Dublin police, the male victim parked his car in front of his home and was approached by three males who demanded his belongings. A struggle between the victim and robbers ensued and the victim was assaulted. The three were able to rob the man and fled but the victim chased them down which led to one of the suspects shooting the victim, according to authorities.
The police arrested two of the suspects on Thursday in their Antioch home. Roy was booked on charges of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and robbery. The 17-year-old was booked on similar charges. Police are looking for the third suspect.
