A man walking in the 1000 block of Homestead Avenue in Walnut Creek was pistol-whipped and robbed by two men who escaped in a car last seen heading towards Walnut Boulevard Friday.
The robbery was reported at 5:41 p.m., when two men identified as black, wearing full face masks and driving a white Camaro with tinted windows approached the victim, struck him with a firearm of unknown type and made off with his briefcase and phone.
It was not immediately known if the victim was seriously injured, though he is believed to have been taken to a local hospital for observation.
