A 52-year-old man was robbed in downtown San Leandro Monday night, when one teenaged male shoved a gun in his belly while a second stood lookout nearby.
The robbery occurred at 10:25 pm Monday in the vicinity of West Estudillo and Alvarado streets, near the downtown San Leandro BART Station.
According to police the victim was walking along when a teenaged male, armed with a black handgun, pushed him up against a fence and threatened to shoot if the victim did not hand over his money.
A second suspect appeared to be acting as lookout, police said.
Police said the victim was able to run away and phone in an emergency call. The suspects were last seen running down the Union Pacific railroad tracks towards Davis Street. Officers swept the area but were not able to find them.
Police offered little by way of description other than that the suspects were both teen males and that the gunman wore a red-hooded sweatshirt.
"The victim was extremely fortunate that he was not seriously hurt," said San Leandro Police Department spokesman Lt. Jeff Tudor.
Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact Det. Hidas at 510-577-3239.
