A routine trip to the bank ended in a moment of terror for a Moraga woman who returned home from the local Bank of America branch to find herself hemmed in by two men in a Mercedes, one of whom reached into her car in an attempt to take her purse, jewels and other items.
The incident was reported on Miramonte Drive at 2:23 p.m.
We have had no indication if the victim was injured. We are hoping not. The robbery is the second of its kind since a Lafayette woman was robbed in much the same way on Taylor Boulevard in Lafayette/Pleasant Hill Wednesday afternoon. In that incident, two men smashed the victim’s car window in order to make off with her purse.
Police have not commented on this incident despite requests from this site.
In Thursday’s incident, the victim reported having her car boxed in by a 2015 Mercedes ML3 with two masked black males in their late teens, early 20s attempting to take her purse and other belongings before driving off toward Orinda.
