Palo Alto police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred in the Duveneck/St. Francis neighborhood Tuesday evening, Feb. 14.
The victim, an adult male, was walking a dog at about 8:15 p.m. near the intersection of Stanley Way and Walter Hays Drive when a man approached him, Sgt. James Reifschneider said. The robber demanded some personal property from the victim, Reifschneider said.
The victim noticed that the robber had what appeared to be a handgun and complied with his demand. The robber then fled the scene, though the victim couldn't say whether the robber ran or drove away, Reifschneider said.
The victim didn't get a good look at the robber but described him as a somewhat young-looking male with a dark complexion and dark clothing.
Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 650-329-2413.
