Three black men went on a four-hour reign of terror in a San Francisco suburb, robbing at least eight people during their crime spree. The robberies took place at homes and businesses in the town of Vallejo and the three men are believed to have been present at each crime. The first robbery was reported yesterday at 5:30 p.m. and the last one at 9:15 p.m., according to local police.
The first robbery took place outside of an individual’s home and then the three suspects moved on to local businesses. Their next burglary took place in the parking lot of Seafood City before moving on to a 7-11 for their next attack. They then confronted several residents outside of their homes before accosting a delivery driver outside of a Costco store, concluding their crime spree in the parking lot of a Pep Boys Auto Center.
The suspects have been described as a group of two or three black males armed with a revolver and wearing black hooded sweatshirts, Police say a darker skinned suspect was described as around 6 feet tall, 180 pounds and had a blue bandana covering his face. A lighter skinned suspect stood about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed about 150 pounds. No specific information for the third suspect has been identified.
Crimes based on race are also a hot topic now in nearby San Jose, where three white students at San Jose State University were charged yesterday with a misdemeanor hate crime and battery for allegedly abusing a black freshman roommate.
