Man Abducted, Robbed from Hayward BART Station

No injuries were reported.

Local authorities are searching for three suspects who abducted a man from the Hayward BART station, robbed him and left him in Fremont late Saturday night, according to Fremont police.

Fremont Police Spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said two men and one woman pulled up in a vehicle next to the victim and asked him for his wallet. When he refused, the driver pointed a gun at him and told him to get into the car, police said.

The group then traveled south, and within that time, the victim was robbed of his wallet, which contained cash, and a Sony PlayStation 3, Bosques said.

Once they reached Fremont, just before 11 p.m., the man was told to get out of the car near the intersection of Stewart Avenue and Boyce Road and the victim then called 9-1-1, Bosques said.

The suspect vehicle was described as a mid-1990s, four-door Mazda.

The female suspect was described as 5-foot-7 tall, 130 pounds with blonde hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a grey hoodie and black pants.

The driver was described as a Hispanic male, 5-foot-5 and 160 pounds with a shaved head and black eyes and wearing a black-and-grey checkered short sleeve shirt with dark pants. The gun was described as a silver revolver.

Police said the third suspect was also described as a Hispanic male who is approximately 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds. Authorities, however, said it is not believed that the third suspect took part in the actual robbery.

BART Police spokeswoman Officer Era Jenkins said there was no record of the abduction in BART's police log but noted that the crime might not have been reported to the agency.

Or you could have been wasted!

This doesn’t prove anything except that criminals are always looking for an opportunity. Whether you carry a gun or own one and leave it at home, you overlooked the element of surprise. Unless you have your gun already drawn and have chosen your target as soon as you see a person walk up to you, the element of surprise will always win. If you had your gun on you and you reached for it more likely than not, you would have ended up on the ground beaten and/or shot, especially since there was several of them. The only thing that can really prevent this is common sense. Know your environment. Be aware of who is around you and where they are. And more importantly, who’s not around you. Chances are, if it looks like you are all alone late at night, someone somewhere has noticed the same thing. I am sorry for the victim, but happy he has his health and his life.

but the victim also has the element of surprise if he has a concealed weapon from the aggressor. It is a double edged sword. Criminals are always looking for an opportunity, but they too measure the risks. Guns alter that calculation wouldn't you say? Lastly, having a weapon may not help in all situations, but it certainly reduces the instances when you have no options.

Constitutional carry? This is Kalifornia. Lets not get ahead of ourselves. Only four states (WY, AK, AZ, VT) currently allow concealed carry without a state issued permit. Most states at least are "shall-issue" permit systems. The problem is that there are a few "may-issue" states (ahem, CA) that believe only elected officials, celebrities, and donors to the Sheriffs re-election campaigns should be granted ccw permits. Even in NY, I had no problem getting a ccw permit. NY has a fair issue system. CA's ccw issue system is a blatant violation of the 14th Amendment. Either issue to everyone, equally, without regards to political status, or don't issue at all (like Illinois).
