A 73-year-old man was robbed of $200,000 in cash by two suspects believed to be members of an East Bay gang in San Leandro. The incident occurred as the man and his wife were returning home after withdrawing the money from a bank on East 14th Street. Police suspect that the suspects had followed the victims from the bank to their residence.

Upon their arrival, two men swiftly approached the couple. One of the suspects forcefully grabbed the man’s briefcase containing the cash, while the other knocked down his wife, causing minor injuries. The suspects swiftly fled the scene in a Mercedes Benz, leaving the victims shocked and shaken.
