Two robbed in East Palo Alto Tuesday night

Two men steal about $600 plus personal property in quick snatch-and-grab robberies

East Palo Alto police were left with few leads after a pair of men robbed two people in a residential neighborhood Tuesday night, police said.

The two victims were approached by two unknown men in the 200 block of Azalia Drive at 10:09 p.m., police Sgt. David Carson said.

The men made off with $600 in cash between the two victims, among other personal property that was stolen.

An investigation is ongoing, although the victims were unable to provide a description of the suspects to police.

"Apparently it was dark and it happened very quickly," Carson said.

Wow! No comments, what if the victims were white? Would anyone care then?

Like I said, less racism, less crime!

I think there should be a "no-racism" day, I wonder if the world would be a better place? Of course it would, but too many people want to hold onto the "we're better than everyone else" to see what happens!
