Would like robbery with that?

Four suspects held a victim at knife-point and gunpoint outside of In-N-Out Burger, 641 Leavesley Road, 11:23 p.m. Dec. 23.

The victim, a 21-year-old Gilroy man, knew one of the suspects from a party in Santa Clara, said Sgt. Jim Gillio. The robbers pulled the victim out of the car and then put a knife to his throat, although the knife was sill in its casing, Gillio said. One of the suspects also brandished a semi-automatic pistol.

The robbers took a CD/DVD player from the car and then fled on foot, leaving the knife at the scene, according to police. The suspects are slender black males, between 5-feet, 6-inches and 5-feet, 10-inches tall, Gillio said. All appeared to be in their early 20s, he said. Neither the suspects nor the gun have been found.

The manager at In-N-Out reported the incident to police after seeing a disturbance in the parking lot.

Car stolen while man was arrested

A man who was arrested by Morgan Hill Police Department on Dec. 1 for performing lewd and lascivious acts upon a child had his car stolen from McDonald’s, 6990 Chestnut St., where he was arrested, Gilroy police said. His vehicle had been secured and left in the parking lot at the time of the arrest. When the man was released from custody on Dec. 21, he discovered his vehicle was missing.

Don’t put your hand there

Gilroy Police officers were dispatched at 10:38 p.m. Saturday to the 8800 block of Lilly Avenue regarding a domestic dispute. Upon arrival, a short struggle ensued, and police said the suspect slapped an officer’s hand. No arrests were made, but the case is being forwarded on to the district attorney’s office for a warrant request.

An old-fashioned challenge?

A 72-year-old man notified police at 5:30 p.m. Sunday that a man had walked up from behind the victim on the 500 block of Stoney Court and backhanded him across the face. The suspect fled and could not be found.

What happened to the money?

Someone at the Pearl Izumi outlet store, 8555 San Ysidro Ave., told police at 5:17 p.m. Monday that a deposit bag containing $1,700 had been stolen from a safe in the store.
