BART police confirmed Friday that they are investigating the robbery of a man who told officers he was walking to his car in the central parking lot of Orinda station at 11:23 p.m. Thursday when he was approached by two men in their early 20s who asked him “for a ride” before knocking him to the ground and taking his duffle bag.
Lt. Kevin Franklin said the two suspects, described only as black males, fled the area in a black Jeep Cherokee – in contradiction to their request for a ride from the victim.
Minor injuries for the victim (apparently a sprained ankle). Lt. Franklin said anyone who witnessed the crime or was in the area at the time and who may have seen the suspect vehicle is asked to call investigators at 510.464.7040.
No monetary loss was given.
