San Joaquin County Sheriff’s deputies investigated a report of an armed robbery in Mountain House on Friday.
The call came at 7:15 p.m. Friday from the 19500 block of West Grant Line Road in a semi-rural subdivision just south of the town. A man said he was working in his garage when two men pulled up in a car, one of whom the man knows as “Sergio.”
One of the men punched him in the face and the other pulled out a large-caliber handgun. The robbers demanded his wallet, his cell phone, a ring and an envelope containing $500 of the victim’s rent money. They also ordered the victim to take off his clothes, then allowed him to get dressed again. The men also searched the victim’s car and took his car keys.
The victim told deputies that “Sergio” also said he was going to “make sure you’re gonna not say anything to anyone.” The victim then ran toward a neighbor’s house, knocked on the door, received no answer, and ran to another neighbor’s house and called 9-1-1.
He described one of the robbers as a white man, about 25 years old, 6-foot-5 and 180 pounds, wearing black pants, a black jacket and a white T-shirt. “Sergio” is described as a Latino man, about 24 years old, 5-foot-6 and 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.
The suspects reportedly drove off in a silver or green car, possibly a Plymouth, Chrysler or Dodge.
