A robber stole a gold necklace from a 51-year-old Alameda woman at gunpoint Sunday, Sept. 23, at South Shore Center, an Alameda Police Department spokesman said.
Lt. Ted Horlbeck said the robbery took place shortly before 1 p.m. on a walkway near the Starbucks coffee shop at South Shore. The victim was not injured, he said. The thief left on foot, in the direction of the U.S. Post Office, he said.
The robber was described as a black male 20 to 25 years old, 5'10" to 6'2" tall, weighing about 180 pounds and wearing a dark hoodie and dark pants.
Horlbeck said the description does not match that of a man suspected of three other robberies in late August and early September, including one of a teenage girl near South Shore Center.
