Adam, my Co-Block Captain, just sent the following email to Walker Watch's mailing list:
I just learned that last night around 11:00pm -- just hours after sending out the following email -- our tenants were mugged on Walker Avenue near Wickson by two African-American men in their twenties, both wearing hooded sweatshirts, one carrying a gun. They pointed a gun directly at their heads, demanded and received their wallets and a backpack, and then sprinted up Wickson Ave.
This marks the fourth known time that a mugging matching the same description and method has occured within a few block radius of our house in the past three weeks.
This is a reminder to all residents, if you observe anything out of the ordinary, please contact the police as soon as you can. There is never any harm in reporting suspicious activity:
OPD emergency: 510-777-3211
OPD non-emergency: 510-777-3333.
