Man robbed at gunpoint at Shell Station

Pleasanton police detectives along with a forensic composite artist have created a sketch of the unidentified male who robbed another man Jan. 16 as he was filling his tires with air at the Shell service station at 6750 Santa Rita Road in Pleasanton.

The robbery suspect approached the victim at about 9:45 p.m., according to Pleasanton police reports. He pointed a small silver handgun and said something to the effect of, "Give me your stuff or I will shoot you."

The suspect proceeded to take the victim's watch, wallet, iPhone, Louis Vuitton shoes and belt, and a 49ers bag containing a No. 84 Randy Moss jersey and a 49ers jacket. The suspect then got into a mid 2000s, two door, Silver Acura CL with a California license plate, driven by an unknown female, and fled eastbound on Pimlico Drive. The iPhone was located a short distance away from the crime scene, police said.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male, 23-28 years old, 5 feet 10 inches, 130-140 pounds, brown eyes, unknown color hair, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with black baseball cap underneath and blue jeans. He has a dark tattoo, possibly an animal print, on the left side of his neck and, at the time of the robbery, several days' worth of facial hair.

The victim sustained no injuries.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
