STOCKTON — Students and parents are uneasy after two teens were robbed at gunpoint in North Stockton.
The Stockton Police Department said the robberies happened two weeks apart, both on Bonniebrook Drive.
In pairs, duos, not alone — students from Lincoln High School in Stockton are more cautious as they walk down Bonniebrook Drive after school on Tuesday after learning that one of their classmates was robbed at gunpoint less than 24 hours prior.
The Lincoln Unified School District sent out an alert to parents on Monday night, stating a 17-year-old boy had come face-to-face with gunman on Bonniebrook and Woodside around 1:45 p.m.
Stockton Police investigators said the teen was walking home from school when another teen boy pointed a pistol at him, demanded his belongings, and took his red and black Adidas shoes.
“I have kids that are about that age. I would not… I feel very upset about it,” neighbor Nancy Franco.
This is the second time in two weeks a high school student has had a gun pointed in his face. Investigators said in April, another teen boy was also walking home from the high school when three teen suspects pointed a rifle at him, demanded his wallet, cash and phone.
“We used to feel safe here but now I’m not even sure I should walk by myself, ” Franco said.
Even though some of the students are a little more scared, they’re also on high alert, more aware of their surroundings.
The suspects in the April 25 incident are described as three males in their late teens in a silver 4-door Honda.
As for Monday’s robbery, the suspects are described as three young Asian males in a Honda Civic with red rims. If you have any information about these incidents, please call police or crime stoppers.
