Armed Bandit Robs McDonald’s




Two employees working an overnight shift at a McDonald’s restaurant at 170 Lincoln Road in Vallejo were shocked when a masked robber crawled through a drive-thru window early Tuesday morning.

At about 2 a.m., when the incident occurred, the doors of the restaurant were closed and locked. Customers were only being served in the drive thru.

< p>The robber “confronted both the manager and the employee with a gun and then forced both to the rear of the business,” said Vallejo Police Lt. Kenny Park. “They were then ordered to strip down and go inside a freezer.”

The employees were in the freezer for less than an hour. In the meantime, the masked robber had made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the registers.

“Fearing for their own lives, the employees decided to stay put until they felt it was safe to come out,” said Lt. Park.

Police do have surveillance video, which may be released once investigators have a chance to review it for evidence.


“We cannot solve all these crimes alone. We’re going to ask for the public’s help,” said Lt. Park.

The robbery suspect is described by police as 5’10”, 165 pounds, early twenties, either African American or Hispanic. Members of the public with information are encouraged to contact Vallejo Crime Stoppers at (707) 644-786.


East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
