A 19-year-old man was arrested in connection with a gunpoint robbery underneath a BART overpass in Richmond early Tuesday, according to the Richmond Police Department.
Jose Manjarrez was taken into custody a short time after police responded to reports of a robbery under the tracks near the intersection of Macdonald Avenue and 16th Street, police spokesperson Nicole Abetkov said.
The victim was walking about 2:15 a.m. when the suspect approached with a gun and demanded his belongings, Abetkov said.
He made off with the victim’s wallet but a cop spotted him shortly after and arrested him. He was in possession of a pellet gun, Abetkov said.
