Four people over the past 24 hours have had their gold chains stolen from them, Stockton Police are reporting.

The first reported incident happened Friday afternoon along Pock Lane, where a 14-year-old boy reached into a car where a 17-year-old girl was sitting and pulled a gold chain from her neck.

However, the suspect wasn’t done, as a 62-year-old woman standing nearby was also punched in the face by the boy. He then ripped a gold chain from her neck and fled the scene on foot.

Then, on Saturday, police reported two more gold chain robberies. The first happened around 9:40 a.m. near Mosswood Avenue and Commerce Street, where a 75-year-old woman was holding a yard sale. A suspect apparently walked up to her and took a gold necklace from her neck.

That suspect and another man then took off running onto Commerce Street.

The second robbery happened near Woodhollow Avenue and Woodbury Lane around 2:45 p.m., where a 49-year-old man had his gold chain stolen by two suspects. The suspects had approached the man and asked him for directions to Food 4 Less.

These suspects then fled the scene in a white 4-door Nissan or Lexus with tinted windows.

In total, there are five suspects for the four gold chain robberies. Police haven’t given any indication that the robberies are related.
