A man assaulted and robbed in front of a grocery store

It happened again, another victim was assaulted in the East Bay near a popular grocery chain. The victim in this case was beaten and required emergency treatment.

The crime happened in the parking lot in front of a Trader Joe’s in San Ramon. KRON4 spoke with a colleague of the victim who says he is still not back to work after this violent crime.

“Really bad facial swelling, jaw still hurts,” Aaron said. He is a colleague of the 32-year-old man who is the latest victim of a robbery outside a Trader Joe’s. Aaron said: “He’s better, he’s still at home recovering.”

It was last week when we told you about a similar crime outside a Trader Joe’s in Danville. San Ramon police said the crime happened around 8:30 p.m. Monday night last week in the parking lot.

Officers say three people speaking Spanish asked the victim for jumper cables and then attacked her, grabbing her wallet and mobile phone. The wallet contained $500 in cash.

The bleeding victim was taken by ambulance to the hospital. Aaron told KRON4 News, “We’re more careful, we don’t (walk) with headphones, we don’t look at our phones, especially when we leave late on Fridays and Saturdays.”

In Danville earlier this month, a man was held up at gunpoint as suspects demanded he hand over his $40,000 Rolex. The suspects in the Danville case have been arrested and face charges. The suspects in this case here in San Ramon are still out there.
