According to reports in the Vacaville Reporter and the Dixon Tribune, three armed robberies occured in Dixon on Friday, November 30th. The first robbery occurred around 6 PM at Northwest Park. The second was approximately 9 PM, again at Northwest Park. The third robbery was shortly after 10 PM, this time in the vicinity of North Washington and West A Streets.
All victims report that they were approached by two Latino males, one brandishing either a semiautomatic handgun or a BB gun.
All witnesses report that the individual brandishing the gun was a Latino male in his 20s, five foot seven, about 200 pounds with a shaved head and goatee. He was wearing blue jeans and a grey hooded sweatshirt or "hoodie."
In at least two of the robberies, the suspects targeted young men carrying backpacks. They reportedly robbed their victims of wallets, cell phones and other electronic devices.
In all three instances, the suspects fled on foot.
The robberies are being investigated by Sgt Tom Cordova, Dixon PD. Anyone with information should contact Dixon PD at 678-7080.
This hits close to home as one of the victims was a family member. I'm disturbed that the Patch failed to report this important story, thus warning potential future victims to be on the lookout.
