A participant in the NextDoor website reports that there was an armed robbery at Cafe Roma at Ashby and College about 9 pm Sunday night. The suspects are still at large.

Here is the report, with the writer's name withheld by the Planet to protect her, since she may be a witness.

'Three dudes came in and tried to steal laptops from the customers. They came in front door and tried to sweep through to the back door - but one of the students tackled one of the guys and then a big huge kerfuffle between the three hoods and a few customers happened. Then a gun was pulled. They did get away with one laptop. Police are here now. I have reported this information to the police."

As of noon on Monday, no information about this incident had been provided to the public by the Berkeley Police via Nixle.
