A male and female victim were held up in an armed robbery in Berkeley, south of the University of California at Berkeley campus early Saturday morning, UC police said. Around 12:30 a.m. the pair was walking near Derby Street and Hillegass Avenue when two men approached them from behind, police said.
One of the suspects pushed the female victim and grabbed her purse. When she turned around she noticed that one of the men had a gun, police said. Both suspects then pushed the male victim and tried to take his belongings. One of the suspects struck him with the gun and was able to take his property, police said. The victims suffered minor injuries during the robbery, police said. The suspects fled in a car that was either brown or red and police have not found them.
The suspects are both described as Hispanic men in their 20s standing about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 175 pounds. One was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans. The second was wearing a light-colored shirt, jeans, a gray beanie and was carrying a gun, police said.
