Please be careful when walking in these neighborhoods at night. My girlfriend and I were robbed at gunpoint Sunday 9/2 at 2:30 AM close to the corner of Crescent and Santa Clara Ave. We were walking a friend to her car late at night and on the return trip were robbed by two white males in their early twenties in black hoodies. One male held the gun while the other collected the items. They both fled on foot. After reporting the incident to the police, they mentioned receiving two separate reports with the same description of the robbers from Friday 8/31 and Thursday 8/30 in 14X and 14Y neighborhoods. It seems these two individuals are roaming our neighborhoods at night. Be cautious and safe.
It must be said: this should bring to an end the fear that some young white couples in Adams Point, and new to Oakland, seem to express when a Black man is walking in the opposite direction on the same side of the street. That was me, headed to the gym.
