HAYWARD (CBS SF) – A man was shot during a robbery while walking home from the South Hayward BART station late Tuesday night, police said.
The victim and his wife exited the BART station shortly after 11 p.m. and were walking westbound on Tennyson Road when two male suspects approached them.
One of the suspects had a gun and they demanded that the victims hand over their wallet and purse, police said.
Police said that the victims did not resist and gave the suspects their possessions.
The armed suspects fired several shots, hitting the man three times, before running away.
The victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive. The woman was not injured during the robbery, police said.
The suspects were described as being in their late teens or early 20s, between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall. They were both wearing white t-shirts and dark pants. Both suspects’ faces were covered with a shirt or piece of cloth.
Earlier that evening, a pair of teen girls reported being confronted and robbed just a short distance away on Tennyson.
Anyone with information is urged to call police at (510) 293-7272 or (510) 293-7000.
