Two men allegedly robbed a patron of a central Tracy card room at gunpoint as he tried to leave the business in the early morning hours Tuesday, April 16.

The victim had finished playing at the Comstock Card Room, 125 W. 11th St., and was walking across the street to his vehicle in the parking lot behind the Tracy Inn, 24 W. 11th St., when he was allegedly approached by two men on bicycles.

One man was allegedly carrying a black handgun, and the pair allegedly stole the victim’s wallet.

The two men were described as being Latino and in their 30s.

One man had a slim build while the second was described as being 5-foot-10 with long hair, a medium build and wearing a black hat. His bike was said to be silver in color.

A police report is expected.
