A man and woman sitting in a car in the 200 block of Lafayette Circle were startled by tapping on their car window and confronted by a masked man in a hoodie who brandished a firearm and demanded a Rolex watch.
The theft was apparently the latest in a dismal trend of jewelry/watch thefts conducted in lightning fashion throughout the 24/680 and the state. Neither victim was believed harmed in any way, reporting the robbery to police at 9:20 p.m.
The gunman got into a car described as a black Infiniti sedan and was last seen making the turn onto Mount Diablo Boulevard. It was not immediately known if he acted alone or if he had an accomplice.
The suspect was described as a black male, 20s, 5′ 11″, 170 pounds, last seen wearing a black hoodie and a yellow face mask. He was armed with a black handgun.
