Berkeley police are asking for the community’s help to find a man who pistol-whipped a high school student during a robbery before getting on a bus last month. The suspect confronted the student from Berkeley Technology Academy at the intersection of Milvia and Stuart streets around 11:35 a.m. on March 13, Berkeley police said.
The student was walking a few blocks from the school when he was approached. The suspect demanded the suspect’s property and when the victim refused the suspect then hit the victim several times with a gun. The victim was hospitalized but not seriously injured in the attack, police said. The suspect then ran east on Stuart Street with the student’s wallet.
A search immediately after the robbery prompted a brief lockdown at Berkeley Technology Academy and at King Child Development Center. Investigators believe the suspect got on an Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus. Surveillance footage from a bus shows the suspect getting onto the vehicle.
He is described as a black man in his 20s standing between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall with a medium build. He was seen wearing a black or dark hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, a black beanie and was armed with a gun.
