On Monday, August 26, 2013 at approximately 12:37pm the Pleasanton Police Department received a 911 call from a resident on Roselma Place, just off upper Bernal Avenue, reporting that she and her husband had been robbed at gunpoint five minutes earlier.
The victim advised that she had just arrived home, exited her vehicle and was attempting to close the garage door when she was confronted by three men armed with guns. The suspects forced her into the house, where they then confronted her husband as well and demanded “the money.” The husband complied and gave them the cash out of fear for his and his wife’s safety.
The husband was apparently gambling at a Bay Area casino from Sunday evening into the early hours of Monday morning. After winning an undisclosed amount of money, he took a cab home and fell asleep in a downstairs bedroom, leaving the cash beside him in a bag. The robbery occurred several hours later.
The three suspects were all described as black male adults, roughly 19 to 23 years of age, of approximately 5’8” in height and weighing 150 pounds. Each was wearing a red “hoodie” sweatshirt and black pants, and all donned bandanas during the robbery. Per the victim, the suspects fled on foot out of the house toward Bernal Avenue. She was unsure whether there was a vehicle involved.Anyone with information that would assist in the investigation is encouraged to contact the Pleasanton
