A pair of robbers, one of them wielding a 6″-long knife, accosted a person at the Lafayette BART station at 4:21 p.m. Saturday – relieving their victims of $700 in cash.
A BART police spokesman was reluctant to give too many details of the incident due to the fact that it was still fresh and certain evidence remained important to their investigation.
But we can say that the victim was approached by a black female in her late teens or early 20s who was dressed in a black hoodie and who brandished a knife, police said. A second individual, described as an unknown race male in his early 20s wearing a baseball cap with a grey bill also participated, according to police.
The pair left in a Nissan Altima or Maxima with a dented right side and were last seen leaving the area of the station in the direction of Highway 24.
