Three men reportedly armed with pistols equipped with extended magazines robbed one man and pistol-whipped a witness attempting to intervene outside a shop at the Livery Shopping Center in Danville Saturday – making off with the victim’s Rolex watch and wallet.
The extent of the victim’s injuries were not immediately known. The Livery is on Sycamore Valley Road West, an area known for its restaurants and popular with locals. The incident was reported at approximately 2:44 p.m.
Unfortunately, Saturday’s robbery is not the first one of its kind in Danville.
The three gunmen in the latest holdup, described only as black males in hoodies, attacked the victim as he was walking to his car, escaping in a blue/black BMW sedan, last seen headed toward Highway 680.
Police said late Saturday that one of the trio fired a shot when the witness attempted to intervene but no one was hit. One of the attackers struck the Good Samaritan with their pistol.
