The University of California Police Department reports that there was an armed robbery last night at the vista point at signpost 15 on Grizzly Peak. The victims, a man and a woman, were sitting in their parked car when four men exited a large pickup truck and approached their car. One suspect stood in back of the car to prevent it from leaving while another suspect approached the passenger side and pointed an automatic handgun at the victim. The other two suspects, wearing black ski masks, were standing next to the driver’s side window.

The suspect with the gun spoke in both Spanish and English and demanded the victims’ property. The victims complied and the four suspects were last seen fleeing the scene in their pickup truck, northbound on Grizzly Peak. A police search of the area was unable to locate the suspects or their truck. The victims were not injured during the incident.

The suspects were described as four Hispanic males, in their late teens or early 20s. If you have information about the crime, contact the UCPD on (510) 642-0472.
