Juvenile Arrested in Connection to BART Robberies

Police today arrested a juvenile believed to be involved in a series of armed robberies targeting BART passengers, BART police said.
 
The juvenile, who has not been identified, was arrested near the North Berkeley BART Station. Police said the suspect is responsible for three robberies over the course of an eight-day period.
 
Police said witnesses told investigators each robbery took place at about the same time and location. Witnesses each described a similar looking suspect. Police said the first robbery occurred June 18 at 6:45 a.m. in the west parking lot of the North Berkeley Station.
 
The second robbery occurred five minutes later in the northwest parking lot of the same station. Police said a third robbery occurred Wednesday at 5:47 a.m. in the west parking lot.
 
In each robbery, the suspect held up victims at gunpoint, demanded cash and fled the scene on foot. There were not reported injuries in any of the robberies. Police said a BART officer took the juvenile into custody this morning at the station.

And, would you not have thought that BART might have warned folks about this? I have emailed our district director and she responded very quickly. I'm waiting to hear from BART police.
