Two masked gunmen surprised a man on his way to his car in the 2300 block of Crystal Avenue on Wednesday, demanding the man’s Rolex watch and wallet and pistol-whipping him to enforce the demand.

The robbery was reported at approximately 7:40 a.m. It was not immediately known if the victim sustained serious injury.

Police were reportedly looking for a silver 4-door KIA with two masked male occupants armed with “Glock-style” pistols. The vehicle was last seen turning onto Crescent Drive.

UPDATE/via FLASH: (12:50pm) ROBBERY UPDATE – suspect(s) in this morning’s Rolex robbery just crashed after a police chase at Laurel Rd and Empire Ave in Oakley.

Oakley police say they arrested:
Christopher Rodriguez, 22, of Oakley
Jimmy Cartwright, 23, of Antioch


  1. Cops need to run a sting for Rolex thieves, then identify the ringleaders. Prosecutors need to put them away for a long time. One person has already been murdered by Rolex thieves. There will be other deaths if the ringleaders are not put out of business.

    • In California, one must take responsibility for ones own safety. Please don’t count on local prosecutors or the judicial system.

  2. I’m not very familiar with that area, but looking at my map’s streetview, it does not look to me like Rolex territory.

      • Many in challenged neighborhoods sport Rolex’s, their enterprises just happen to not be reported to the IRS or other taxing authorities.

      • OK, in the interest of saying something pithy about the relationship between household budget items and wealth, I did a bunch of research but did not come to the conclusion I was hoping. Apparently, Rolex owners cut across all income levels and demographics and are based a lot on taste and lifestyle. My wallet appreciates my lack of taste.
