Menlo Park: Robbers snatch necklace and iPhone

 

An unidentified assailant punched a Menlo Park man, then yanked a gold chain off his neck as the victim walked near the intersection of Hamilton and Carlton Avenues around 8 p.m. Tuesday.

A second suspect then grabbed the victim's iPhone. The robbers were described as two slender young Hispanic men. One sported a white shirt with dark pants and black shoes with red and white trim, the other a black hoodie.

The victim recovered the necklace at the scene. He had non-life-threatening injuries, police said, and declined medical care.

The pair fled south on Hamilton Avenue in a silver Ford pickup truck, according to Menlo Park police spokeswoman Nicole Acker.

"The pair fled south on Hamilton Avenue in a silver Ford pickup truck, according to Menlo Park police spokeswoman Nicole Acker."

Apparently heading for Sanctuary City- San Francisco.

To Arch Conservative: If they headed south from Menlo Park, they would not reach "Sanctuary City- San Francisco." That was your intelligent comment? Did you not know that they would have to drive north from Menlo Park in order to reach San Francisco?

scb- Really, you head West to get to San Francisco- Look at it on the map- not what you think is North. North will get you into the Bay.

At least you are correcting what you said originally; San Francisco is not south of Menlo Park.
