Lamorinda police, aided by a police helicopter, flooded the streets near the Moraga Country Club after an elderly couple reported being robbed at gunpoint outside their Indian Wells home Wednesday night.
Officers were advised of the robbery at 10:27 p.m., responded to the scene and found that the victims, who are in their 70’s, had arrived home and parked in their driveway when they were confronted by two unknown Hispanic male adults. One subject pointed a handgun at the female and took her purse and another bag she was holding. The second subject confronted the elderly male and pushed him to the ground, causing minor injuries.
The suspects left the area and were last seen running east on Indian Wells towards St. Andrews. Officers from Orinda and Lafayette Police, as well as the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s helicopter, also responded and assisted in checking the area. However, the suspects remain outstanding.
The first suspect, with the handgun, was described as a Hispanic male adult in his mid-20s, 5’3” to 5’10”, stocky build, with a mustache, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and possibly wearing glasses.
The second suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult in his mid-20s, 5’6” to 5’10”, thin build, wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.
Anyone with information or who might have home surveillance video recordings in that area is asked to contact Lt. Brian South at 925-888-7052 or the Moraga Police Department at 925-284-5010 (24/7).
