A 39-year-old man was robbed Saturday night by a group of teens no older than 16, according to Stockton Police.

The man was walking home from Food 4 Less near McDougald Boulevard and Ishi Goto Street around 9:15 p.m. when a group of six teenagers, four boys and two girls, confronted him.

One of the teen boys then pointed a handgun at the man, while the other boys went through his pockets. The boy with the gun then kicked the man on the left knee and pistol whipped him on the head.

The hit caused a one-inch laceration to the man’s head.

All the teens then ran from the area, back towards the Food 4 Less, with the man’s cash. They are described as looking between 14 and 16 years old.
