The same two men are believed to be responsible for a series of at least four armed robberies in the last week in the area along Oakland’s International Boulevard between Lake Merritt and Fruitvale Avenue, a police captain said.
The suspects are described as black men in their 20s who are between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing dark clothing and armed with a gun, police Capt. Rick Orozco said. They approach victims from behind and demand their money, purses, cellphones and jewelry before running into a waiting car.
They have been implicated in at least one carjacking as well, Orozco said. One robbery was reported shortly after 10 p.m. Friday near the corner of Fifth Avenue and International Boulevard. On Saturday, the suspects committed another robbery near the corner of 17th Avenue and East 15th Street at about 9:25 p.m.
Minutes later, they carjacked a victim near the corner of 10th Avenue and International Boulevard, Orozco said. They are suspected in another robbery on Monday, near the corner of International Boulevard and Mitchell Street, between 27th and 28th avenues. The description of the suspects’ vehicle has varied and police are asking anyone who sees the suspects to take down their license plate number.
