Police searching for suspect in armed robbery

Pleasanton police are searching for a young man in connection with an armed robbery and assault around 10 p.m. Sunday night near the intersection of Foothill Road and Deodar Way.

Police say the 27-year-old victim was approached by a man who pointed a black semiautomatic pistol at him and demanded his belongings. The suspect punched the victim in the face and took a white backpack containing his wallet and iPod Touch, then ran eastbound on Laurel Creek Road.

The victim received minor injuries. Police describe the suspect as an 18- to 20-year old black male with short hair, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark brown hooded sweatshirt and black jeans.

While police say they are following some leads, they ask anyone with information to contact them at 931-5100.
