Phone Robbery Thwarted in Unusual Manner

SACRAMENTO –

In the daylight, it’s one of Sacramento’s signature neighborhoods.

But by dark of night, dark of last night to be specific, what people were reporting was a silver revolver.

“We had two individuals approach a group, and rob them at gunpoint for their property,” Said Doug Morse of the Sacramento Police Department.

That’s when something peculiar happened, according to some reports. One of the victims told one of the robbers it was her birthday. And that’s when he gave her phone back.

A change of heart? A remorseful robber?

“I haven’t seen it before,” Morse said.

But before you go getting too mushy over an isolated incident of remorse, take a listen to the scanner again.

“Yup. 37… Totally gonna be the guys… small, silver revolver.”

Another report of robbers, possibly the same men, striking again just blocks away.

“With these two incidents, we’ll take a look at it, and if they feel they need to redirect some resources, they’ll allocate more resources to this area.” Said Morse.
