Armed Robbery in Piedmont – UPDATE 8-6-2019

Two subjects believed to be responsible for two Piedmont August 4th robberies were taken into custody August 5, 2019.

On August 4, 2019, two armed robberies occurred in the City of Piedmont.

The first event occurred at approximately 9:10 p.m. when three juveniles, 14 years of age, were in the area of Bonita Avenue, near the tennis complex. The juveniles were approached from behind by three suspects. One of the suspects was armed with black handguns. The suspects demanded valuables including smartphones, cash and backpacks. After taking the items of value, the suspects fled in a vehicle described as a white sedan on Vista Avenue towards Highland Avenue. The suspects were all wearing hooded sweatshirts which were pulled down in an attempt to conceal their faces however the victims did describe the suspects as black males wearing dark clothing. The victims were not able to describe the driver of the vehicle.

The second event occurred about ten minutes after the first event, at 9:20pm, in the area of Seaview Avenue. The 15 year old victim was walking in the area when three suspects ran up to him and one of the suspects, grabbed and removed his backpack. The suspects then ran off and got into a waiting white car and fled on Sea View Avenue towards Mountain Avenue. The victim described one of the suspects who took his backpack as a black male wearing all black clothing and the other suspects as unknown race males also wearing dark clothing.


A vehicle matching the description of the involved car was stopped last night (8/5/19) by Oakland Police Department officers.
