A lot of robberies/burglaries yesterday. All in formation is from the police. No reporting on my part.
A woman putting her groceries into her car at Food Maxx was approached my a man who wanted to use her cell phone. The guy then knocked her to the ground and tried to steal her purse. When she struggled, he punched her several times in the mouth, before fleeing in a white Toyota four-door car driven by a heavyset Hispanic woman.
The next robbery was at a jewelery store on Grimmer Boulevard. A couple of dudes with guns, one being an assault rifle entered the store with ski masks covering their faces. They tied up the victims and left with about $1,300 in cash. I’m guessing we’ll have more on this one soon.
Shortly thereafter, officers were dispatched to Allegro Music where they arrested a 19-year-old and two juvys, who were found with three stolen guitars, which might have been lifted from a Union City store.
Last, but not least two males in their early 20s stole snowboards from REI. An REI employee witnessed the theft and called police, who followed the burglars to Blacow and Mowry, where they arrested the duo and recovered the snowboards.
