Two victims sitting in a parked car on Grizzly Peak Boulevard were robbed of their property Tuesday night when four men pointed an automatic handgun inside their car.

The four suspects approached the vehicle - parked near Vista Point at signpost 15 on Grizzly Peak - at about 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 18, according to a UCPD crime alert detailing the incident. While one suspect stood behind the vehicle to prevent it from leaving, another allegedly pointed an automatic handgun inside the vehicle on the passenger's side and demanded the victims' property. The remaining two suspects stood outside the car on the driver's side and were wearing black ski masks, the alert states.

After the victims complied, the suspects fled the scene in a black four-door pickup truck with either a crew cab or extended cab, according to UCPD Lt. Alex Yao. The truck had a loud exhaust and a white toolbox with a light on the bed of the truck, he said.

Officers from UCPD were unable to locate the suspects or their vehicle after a search of the area.

Yao added that robberies near Grizzly Peak are not common and that there has only been one other reported robbery on Grizzly Peak since the beginning of 2010. It occurred at about 2:30 a.m., he said.

"However, we do encourage people to exercise caution when they are parked off Grizzly Peak Boulevard, as the location is remote and cell phone reception may be inconsistent," Yao said.
