A man parked in the lot at St. Vianney Church, and near the Walnut Festival, was robbed by two men of his wallet Thursday night.
Lt. Shelley James said, shortly after 10 p.m., the victim was parked in his vehicle in the parking lot at 1650 Ygnacio Valley Road. That’s the address of St. Vianney Church.
The first robber pointed a semiautomatic handgun at the victim and ordered him out of the vehicle. The victim complied and was ordered to hand over his wallet. The suspect then went through the victim’s pants pocket and again demanded his wallet. The suspect then reached inside the vehicle and removed the victim’s briefcase, ran off, discharging his handgun several times in the general direction of where the victim was standing. The victim was not injured.
The two suspects got into an older model , possibly green pickup truck with a camper shell that was parked nearby and drove off westbound on Ygnacio Valley Roard. Officers responded to the scene and searched the surrounding area but didn’t find anyway.
The two suspects and weapon are still outstanding.
Anyone with information on this robbery should call the Walnut Creek Police Department at (925) 943-5844.
