A mother and her child were the victims Thursday morning of what has become a series of gold chain robberies in Oakland, police said. Two suspects allegedly robbed gold jewelry from a mother and her child in the 4700 block of Bancroft Ave. around 9:40 a.m., police said.

The suspects were described as two African-American males — a man and what appeared to be an 11-year-old boy. They were not found after the robbery, police said.
