Redwood City police are investigating two robberies that occurred within half an hour of each other Thursday night. The first happened around 8 p.m. in the area of Broadway and Mills Way. The victim was walking down the street when he was approached from behind by a vehicle similar to a black Ford Mustang or a Chevy Camaro, police Detective Ken Cochran said. Two men exited the vehicle and confronted the victim, then took his wallet and fled in the car, which was driven by a third man, Cochran said. The second robbery happened about half an hour later near Fifth Avenue and Bay Road, less than a mile from where the first robbery occurred. In that case, the victim was riding his bike home when he was confronted by two suspects in a white, four-door vehicle similar to a 1990s Toyota Corolla. The suspects had a revolver and took cash from the victim, Cochran said. They then fled west on Fifth Avenue in the vehicle. Police note that the cars used in the two robberies were different but are working to determine whether there was any link between the crimes.
