Woman Robbed Outside Supermarket By Gunmen

Police say woman was held up as she exited Lucky supermarket

Bay City News Service

A woman was robbed by two armed men outside a San Leandro Lucky store Friday night, according to police.

The woman was waiting outside of the Lucky supermarket at 1300 Fairmont Drive around 11:30 p.m. when she was approached by the two suspects, said Lt. Jeff Tudor.

The first suspect pointed a handgun at her and told her she was
being robbed. He then grabbed her purse and fled to a dark colored sedan.

The sedan drove west out of the parking lot. A search of the area did not locate the suspects.

The victim was not injured in the robbery, Tudor said.

Both suspects were described as 20-year-old black men. The first suspect was around 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and was armed with a black handgun.

The second suspect was described only as wearing dark clothing, Tudor said.

Anyone with information on this incident should call police at (510) 577-3237 or the anonymous tip line at (510) 577-3278. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by text by sending the word SLPD and the tip to 847411,

Shocking description of the robbers. (LOL)

Man, I was there hours before that.

Please tell me you're not mocking the victim here... where's the (LOL) in this ?

That's gotta be the worst Luckys I've ever been to, u can't EVER get a shopping basket there!
Michael Allen August 26, 2012 at 04:22 PM
Bring a gun and you get a basket... and purses, and wallets... they'll even double bag for you. This is my regular grocery store. it's semi-shady at night so we go to Safeway CV for late night stops. Not much you can do for things like this, hit and run crime.
Barry Kane August 26, 2012 at 05:33 PM
I made no comment about the victim and my heart goes out to them, not sure what you are saying?
Barry Kane August 26, 2012 at 05:33 PM
Sad that we have to go to Castro Valley to feel safe.
Gary Allsebrook August 27, 2012 at 12:55 AM
I hate to tell you but Castro Valley isn't all that safe at night either. You might try Dublin.
Barry Kane August 27, 2012 at 02:51 AM
I actually do go to Dublin to shop. The newer Castro Valley Safeway @ 580 Metro Center is safe at night.

Lot of gangs in Dublin, safety is perception I guess
Barry Kane August 27, 2012 at 05:08 AM
The violent crime rate in Dublin is more than 70% lower than that of San Leandro, so in this case perception is reality.
sanleandronumerouno August 27, 2012 at 05:59 AM
move there you won't be missed
Barry Kane August 27, 2012 at 04:23 PM
Why thank you, that solves our crime issues for sure. Maybe pretending all is well and having low expectations for our city is part of the problem? Maybe if the entire middle class and upper middle moves you would be happier and SL could be just like east Oakland? Is that your dream?
Gary Allsebrook August 27, 2012 at 07:09 PM
Evidently numerouno is in denial about the street crime and dramatic uptick in burglaries and armed robberies in San Leandro. It many regards it is becoming another East Oakland in some downtown areas. San Leandro has no problem paying $6K/month for red light cameras yet can't afford to put more officers on the street or investigate residential burglaries. If you really love San Leandro I strongly suggest you become proactively involved in city politics.
Gary Allsebrook August 27, 2012 at 07:10 PM
That's $6K each I might add...
Gary Allsebrook August 27, 2012 at 07:15 PM
If there are so many gangs in Dublin where are all the tags and graffiti? What's your source for that? There are some poor areas but most of Dublin is pretty upscale. I certainly have little fear at Stoneridge. Would I shop at Bayfair?forget it, even with a police substation there.
Ken Briggs August 29, 2012 at 12:59 AM
people should park close to the door way at night . feel sorry for the ones that get robbed . maybe if the store would a extra clerk to go out with the late night shoppers it might help.
Gary Allsebrook August 29, 2012 at 01:10 AM
Very good suggestions but "situational awareness" is another item we have forgotten as we run around staring into our smart phones. Not that the victim was but I see many people doing it. Robbers prey on the distracted.
Fred Eiger September 18, 2012 at 04:36 AM
I'm not shocked at all at the description of the robbers.
Fred Eiger September 18, 2012 at 04:37 AM
I'm sure you won't be missed either if you moved.
Barry Kane September 18, 2012 at 05:12 AM
Fred, my comment was meant to be sarcastic.
