Hayward police said they are looking for two male suspects believed to be responsible for two robberies and shootings near the South Hayward BART station late Tuesday night. Lt. Roger Keener said the first incident occurred about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday when two women in their late teens or early 20s were accosted by the two suspects as they were walking on Tennyson Road near the BART station, about 25 feet outside BART property.
He said one of the suspects fired a shot in the air, apparently as a scare tactic or as a way of getting the victims’ attention. The suspects then took some valuables from the women, Keener said. A few minutes later, at about 11:17 p.m., the suspects approached a man and his wife who had exited the BART station and were walking west on Tennyson Road in the same area where the women had been robbed, according to Keener. One of the suspects had a gun and they demanded that the victims hand over their wallet and purse, Keener said. He said the victims didn’t resist and gave the suspects their possessions, but the armed suspect still shot the man several times before he and his accomplice ran away, Keener said.
The victim was taken to a hospital, where he is in stable condition and has been able to talk to investigators, according to Keener. The man’s wife was not injured. Keener described the suspects as two Hispanic males who are in their late teens or early 20s and are about 5 feet 8 inches tall with thin builds. He said both suspects were dressed in black clothes. One suspect had a white covering over his face and the other suspect pulled his black T-shirt over his head to cover his face, Keener said.
