Oakland Council Candidate Robbed At Gunpoint

Daniel Kalb, a candidate for Oakland City Council, was the victim of an armed robbery. This occurs as Oakland faces a police shortage that could affect San Leandro.


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.
