On Sunday, February 6, 2011 at approximately 3:10 a.m. the two victims, a
male and a female affiliation unknown, were walking eastbound on the 2700
block of Bancroft Way. They were approached by two males who started
punching the male victim. The male victim was pursued by the suspects as
he ran to a nearby porch. The victim started to fight back and the
suspects fled the scene. The female victim flagged down a pedestrian who
phoned 9-1-1. The pedestrian chased the suspects westbound to a parking
garage where they got into a dark sedan and drove away westbound on
Bancroft. BPD officers searched the area but were unable to locate the
suspects or the sedan. During the incident, the victim heard the suspects
mention “taking his things.” The male victim was slightly injured and was
treated at the scene by BFD.
The suspects were described as:
Suspect #1 – An Asian or Hispanic male in his early 20s, 6’0” in height,
150 lbs., with a medium build, black hair, brown eyes, wearing a black
hooded sweatshirt and black jeans with a gold design on them.
Suspect #2 – A Hispanic male in his early 20s, 6’0” in height, 150 lbs.,
