Caught on camera: Man robbed at gunpoint in driveway of Oakland home

Bay Area

OAKLAND (KRON) — A man says he was cleaning his car in his driveway Oakland when two men put a gun to his head and robbed him.

A home security camera captured the crime and now police are investigating.

“These two guys came up behind me and started robbing me,” the victim said.

The robbery happened Monday afternoon about 1:30 p.m. in Oakland’s Dimond District.  

The victim who prefers to remain anonymous says initially he tried to resist.

“They kept trying to get me to go on the ground but the guy with the gun kept pressing it against my neck and telling me to get down, so that [was] when I finally dropped to the floor,” he said.

In less than 35 seconds, the suspects stole the victim’s necklace, bracelet, cell phone, and car and house keys before leaving the scene.

The victim says crime has steadily been on the rise in his once quiet neighborhood, but this is his first time as a victim.
