An Oakland City Council candidate was robbed Wednesday night in Oakland, police said.
The report comes as Oakland faces a shortage of police, with the local question being how this could affect San Leandro.
Council candidate Daniel Kalb was the victim of an armed robbery that occurred at about 8:35 p.m., according to the Oakland Tribune.
He was not injured, and no arrests have been made in the case, police said.
The Tribune says Kalb had returned home after attending a neghborhood crime prevention council meeting. He had got gotten out of his car when a robber poked him in the back with a gun and ordered him to hand over his iPhone and wallet.
Kalb was not injured, the report said.
The robber fled in a vehicle and is not in custody, OPD public information officer Johnna Watson said Thursday morning.
